Word study matters. Explicit and systematic phonics instruction is critical for our emerging readers. Direct instruction has to be a component of our reading blocks, as well as, opportunities for students to use and apply sounds.

Five of the sorts are perfect for introducing short vowels and/or practicing short vowel sounds in small groups or RtI. Then, five sorts asks students to read the words aloud discerning between short and long (v__e) vowel sounds.

Writing is a critical component to my literacy block, so each sort asks students to write sentences that include one or more of the vowels.

These cut and paste sorts are perfect for a Word Work center, morning work, RTI, or at-home practice.
