What is Sortin' Through the Year?

Sortin’ Through the Year is a systematic and versatile program that can be used to supplement any current curriculum in the classroom! The program is designed to give primary students a way to practice phonics skills in a hands-on and meaningful way. You can find success in using this program in your whole-group instruction, intervention groups, RTI groups, guided reading, or as a resource for non certified staff members assisting in the classroom.

The skills can be introduced and combined any order the teacher chooses. That makes this program available to all teachers that have the desire to boost their phonics instruction.

What are phonics sorts?

Phonics sorts offer students an opportunity to practice the particular skill in a hands-on and conceptual way. This allows students to see how letters and words work. Phonics sorts also allow offer an opportunity for students to move past learning the skill in a memorization way, instead they apply their problem solving skills and discover the pattern that lies within each sort. Once students are able to identify the pattern, they will begin to understand the English language which will reflect in their reading and writing abilities. Phonics sorts have been thoroughly researched and tested, they have proven successful time after time. This is displayed in an article posted by the International Literacy Association where a group of teachers researched and “classroom certified” the positive influences of phonics sorts. “We have found word study to be a teacher-directed yet student-centered approach to spelling instruction, and when integrated into a comprehensive literacy program it can help support young children’s literacy development.” Williams et al. (2009)

How can I differentiate the phonics sorts?

There are a few different options when it comes to using the sorts beyond a traditional closed sort. First, you may choose to give the students a set of picture or word cards and no header cards. Be giving the students no header card, they will have to determine the sort category independently. This is called an open sort. Another option is call out the words without showing the picture or word card. Students will merely point to the category header that the card belongs to. This type of sort is called a blind sort. Lastly, you might choose to bump up the fluency of the sort and do a speed sort. You will set a timer or play a game to see who can sort the quickest. You can extend these sorts even further by introducing the students to a writing sort. The students write the words into their notebooks instead of pasting the pictures. You can then also have them write the complete sentences using the words or create their own sentences as well.
