This is a fun word study resource to explicitly introduce the "e" and "i" sounds of the letter y. Through these "detective" activities students can learn when Y says "e" and when Y says "i".
Generally I give half of my students the pages with the letter sound discrimination (pages 3 and 5) and the other half the one versus two syllable pages (Pages 2 and 4) and then have them pair up in groups of two (making sure that each pair has one of each set) to compare the answers and ultimately recognize they have the same words paired with two separate sorting instructions.

Or you can have students complete both and then compare their own pages to recognize their sorts were exactly the same.
