Ultimate Word Work Beginning Consonants: Phonics, Spelling, Vocab-Minimal Prep- Words their Way Compatible- The last word work bundle you'll buy!
If you're like me, word work/ phonics/ spelling/ and vocabulary have always been a bit overwhelming to tackle. So many facets to include in such a small segment of the day. Not to mention trying to manage multiple groups working on multiple skills and trying to do so in meaningful ways. After four years of teaching first grade and trying many different ways to give my students the best instruction, I think I may have found the answer to our problems!
This set is the first sort/exploration in a 5 sort bundle to explore the beginning consonant sounds. This sort is compatible with Words Their Way, but it is not necessary to use or follow that program to use my product. This first sort is being listed as a freebie to get a feel for my work. If this product fits the needs of your classroom, be sure to check back often to see my new products. I would love any constructive feedback you are willing to offer about my product. I would truly love this to be the last word work product you need to buy—with meaningful activities and explorations for your students.
I will be listing a total of 36 sorts for Letter Name Alphabetic including word families, short vowels, consonant digraphs (ch, sh, wh, th) and consonant blends. Also, 45 sorts for within word patterns for long vowels, silent e, vowel patterns/teams, r-influenced/controlled vowels, diphthongs, vowel digraphs, and word endings. Follow my Shop to get notified when these new products are offered. I will always list with at least 24 hours at 50% off to grab great deals.
This set includes:
1 set of heading cards for large sort (1 page+ 2 backing pages)
Picture sort cards (4 pages)
Vocabulary sort cards (4 pages)
Personal sort cards and mat (2 pages)
Weekly words list for home (1 pages)
Pre and post assessment (2 pages)
Beginning sound worksheet activities (5 pages)
Syllable sorts (2 pages)
Rhyming (2 pages)
Vocabulary (1 page)
This set is designed to be meaningful but minimal prep for you—with only copying and cutting the word sort cards (picture sort) and heading cards. They can be copied black and white or color, they can be laminated or left alone. I like to provide options in all that I do. This set is also designed to introduce the sort on Monday, with the students completing a large sort and personal sort. Tuesday-Thursday, there are ample worksheet activities to practice their skills. Friday, students can complete the post assessment on their own by simply looking at the pictures! This truly needs to be the last word work set that you purchase (or get for free!).
