I love word sorts. They are great ways for kids to practice their sounds and blending, while organizing and classifying words. It helps students see words and their relationships to each other and also to see sound spelling patterns.
This set of word sorts has pictures to help struggling readers and second language learners or just your beginning readers. Each page also has sentence writing practice for your students. These sorts are great to use in a word work center and can be used for word work practice at home.
These sorts are appropriate for kinder, first, and even into second grade as they start with easy letter sorts, beginning and ending letters and moves into long vowel pattern sorts and blends.
