    One of the features that makes this product unique are the short stories with comprehension questions! They provide reading practice of the target words in context plus a comprehension piece. The words are not taught only in isolation! They are practiced in context as well!

    This product requires students to think deeper and work harder.

    • a poster for each word family

    • a sorting mat

    • 40 sorting cards

    • 4 word box worksheets (matching the sorting cards)
