Product Description
Add to your phonics curriculum with these short and long vowel activities! This word work set can help your students discriminate between short a (cvc) and long a (magic-e) word patterns. Each sort contains 10 short a words, with the 10 corresponding long a words. For example, the sort contains the word “man”, and also contains “mane”. It was designed this way so that the students have to differentiate between the short and long a sounds and patterns.

What’s Included?
- 2 word sorts – in color and black & white
- 1 recording/spelling practice sheet
- 23 magic-e foldables

The color word sort is meant to be used as a direct instruction activity, where the teacher models and instructs on the differences between the cvc and cvce patterns. There are basic cvc/cvce pattern words included, as well as words with beginning consonant digraphs and consonant blends. This can help you differentiate based on your students phonics needs.

The black and white sort would be perfect for independent practice after your direct instruction.

The recording sheet can be laminated and used at literacy centers. It can also be used as a spelling sheet to allow students to practice writing the cvc and cvce patterns.

*Perfect for reading intervention groups or literacy centers!

I use these sorts when I'm transitioning students between my Short a Word Sort Set Bundle and my Long a (CVCe) Word Sort Set Bundle. By comparing the new cvce pattern with a pattern they already know (cvc), the students are able to make connections to help them remember the new pattern.

This resource is also part of my Short or Long Vowel Word Sort Sets Bundle. The bundle includes 4 resources at a discounted price!
