Use this packet to guide you through Words Their Way or any other word sort type word work activity to engage students in the process of learning and practicing their words sort.
Day 1: Blind Sort/Pretest
Day 2: Teacher Station (Introduce sort and create initial sort with student to teach skill)
Day 3: Word Work (student sort words, do fast finger call with a partner, and write sentences with five of the words. Extra time activity as well).
Day 4: Creative words writing choice activity
Day 5: Word Hunt (students silently read a book and find words that follow the word study rules for their sort)
Day 6: Pretest (Partners give each other a pretest on their word sorts. Then students reflect on their performance to know what they need to prepare for Day 6 final words sort test)
Day 7: Assessment (You can choose as many words as you feel is necessary to test for mastery).
I have a six day option available as well. All days are the same except there is no blind sort/pretest day.
