I made this activity for my students to practice reading words (1 and 2 syllable) and identifying if it contains an AR, OR or ER r-controlled syllable. This worksheet can be used for practice, an assessment tool, homework, or a center. The students have to circle the r-controlled vowel in each word, then cut and sort/glue the words into the correct category. This activity can go along with any spelling program. It would be ideal for 1st and 2nd grade students, however it would also help struggling students in 3rd grade or to serve as a review at the start of 3rd grade. Also check out my R-Controlled Vowels Sort for ER, IR and UR, as well as all of my word searches, and activities for blends, vowel teams, r-controlled vowels, short cs. long vowels, etc.
