These cut and paste vowel team and diphthong spelling printables are a great way for your students to practice blending, segmenting, spelling, and sorting words with long vowel and diphthong spelling patterns.
Three levels of sorts are included for each of the following spelling patterns:
• ay and ai
• ee and ea
• oa and ow
• ie and igh (trigraph)
• oi and oy
• ew and ue
• au and aw
• ou and ow
Includes 24 sorts in all!
The first level of each page asks students to trace the word representing the picture shown and then cut, sort, and paste the words onto the recording sheet. (I use this level with my ELL newcomers and some special education students.) The mid-level version asks students to fill in the missing letters and then cut, sort, and paste. The most challenging version asks students to write the words before cutting, sorting, and pasting them. (When using this final set, you may need to take a moment go over what each picture represents orally before students begin.)
These activities address the following Common Core Standards:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.2.E: Spell untaught words phonetically, drawing on phonemic awareness and spelling conventions.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.1.3.C: Know final -e and common vowel team conventions for representing long vowel sounds.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.2.3: Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.2.2.D: Generalize learned spelling patterns when writing words (e.g., cage → badge; boy → boil).
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.2.3.B: Know spelling-sound correspondences for additional common vowel teams.
