This word sort investigates the three sounds ED can make. Students are asked to cut out words, read them, and sort them by which sound ED makes, d, ed/id, or t.
This activity targets:
- Reading words with inflectional ending
-Decoding words that include digraphs and blends
-Practice decoding and saying words in the past tense
-Practice discriminating between the three sounds past tense makes
This is an effective tool to use as a pre-reading or intervention activity for students who display difficulty conjugating words into the past tense when speaking or reading.
(Available in two formats, ed or id, depending on your phonics program.)
