Word Study is a great way to get students to learn patterns to help them read and write. Included are 38 read the room activites that range from concept sorts, letter identification, rhyming sounds, beginning sounds, ending sounds, word families, and short vowels. These pair with the Word Study sorts that follow my Letter and Picture Sorts for Emergent Spellers.
Each sort has 12 cards that correspond to some of the pictures/letters/words in each of the word study sorts. There are 3 different kinds of read the room cards.
- picture cards (these include images that are in the sort to reinforce vocabulary and others that are not to encourage students to extend the skill to new words)
- letter cards (these include various fonts in upper and lowercase for students to write the matching upper and lowercase letters - the recording sheet includes handwriting lines to support letter writing skills)
- picture/illustrate the word cards (these include 8 pictures and 4 words – the 4 words, use patterns for students to apply their knowledge reading words and illustrating to match)
