This file consists of a Pirate themed version of my easy to use and maintain word sorting schedule.
I've always struggled with finding a way to visually display what each of my groups are doing with their word sorts. This display has taken away this problem.
I have five groups which rotate through 8 activities. I meet with one group each day to introduce their word sort. This leaves me 3 days to meet with strugglers or do a reading conference or two!
This pack comes with a Word Study header, pirate ships which describe 13 different word sorting activities and parchment clip art pieces to write your group members on.
How it works: once it is set up as in the pictures, you simply move the little pirate images down a pirate ship! The pirate ship tells each group what activity they are doing with their word sort. Easy!
Check out the preview for more information.
I'm also making up other themed sets. I've made Hollywood/Movies and a Flowers/Spring themes at the moment. If you would like a word sort schedule made up in your classroom theme, please email me at downunderteacherblog at gmail dot com and I'll do what I can to help you.
