This packet includes word sort and word study activities. The words included are the basic word study/spelling words as well as the words on the struggling and advanced lists for unit 1 of the second grade Journeys series, but they can be used with any reading program.
Lesson 1 basic list reviews short a and short i. The struggling list reviews short a, and the advanced list long a patterns of ai and ay.

Lesson 5 basic list reviews r, s, and l blends. The struggling list reviews short u and e, and the advanced list works on long i with -i, -igh, and -y.
Each of the five lesson packets include 5-6 sort activities for each list. There is a recording sheet where students can write the words they sorted. The other activities are all print-and-go activities that are great for center time, seat work, homework, or small group intervention activities. One page is cut and sort activity. The remaining four activity sheets all have the words for the week to be sorted to provide daily reinforcement. On the opposite side of the paper is a different activity each day and may include: ABC order, unscramble and write, sort by syllables, sort by number of letters, color the vowel sound, underline the vowel sound and trace, etc.
The full color sorting cards and headers for Unit 1 are now available as a separate free file. Due to the size limitations, I was unable to include all five lessons and the sort cards together. You can find the sort cards here.
