These word work phonics cards are just the right size for word sorting during reading small groups! I always need a lot of different cards that are ready for my students to sort quickly during their word work time in reading. The cards will work with many groups as they include several different phonics word groups. And these are just the right size- not so small that they are easily lost but not so big that they take up too much room either. Students can quickly sort the cards individually or in partners for the sounds the teacher decides they are ready for.

The cards are in black and white so easy prep- print, laminate, and cut! Each group is coded with cute bug clip art to help you keep the cards organized: short vowels, blends/digraphs, long vowel silent e, and r controlled. They easily store in small plastic containers with dividers.
