These phonics picture sorts are perfect for building phonemic awareness and phonics fluency. Students are asked to match a picture to a word and sort those words by vowel sound. This particular file focuses on comparing long vowels (with silent e) to short vowels.
Let’s keep phonics fun! Students love coloring the black-line artwork and using their scissors and glue. The hands-on manipulation of words and pictures keeps engagement high. Consider lamination for use in a literacy station.
This file contains six sorting activities. The following skills are addressed:
Long A + Short A
Long I + Short I
Long O + Short O
Long U + Short U
