Focusing on Word families and Patterns: The Word Study: Word Sorting Kit is designed to support teachers with the implementation of word study in their classrooms.
The goal is not to reinvent a strategy that has already been developed; the idea is to provide teachers with supplemental resources that can be used by both the instructor and the child to further enhance their understanding of words and how they work. This resource can be used to provide guided instruction in a small group or large group setting.
The Word Study Sorting Kit is designed to enhance phonological awareness through phonetic and phonemic awareness. This resource is for you if your students are beginning to represent beginning, middle, and ending sounds with letters that are phonetically accurate. Or, if their letter choice is often based on the sounds of the letters name rather than the more abstract sound or letter-sound association.
The Word Study: Word Sorting Kit (Letter Name Stage) will support instruction and students' understanding of initial/final consonants, initial/final consonant blends and digraphs, short vowel sounds, affricates, and final consonant blends/digraphs.If you are looking for a systematic system for word study instruction that is ready-made and easy to use, this kit is what you need. I provide twenty-one word sorts for all possible phonograms (word families) that address the skills listed above. By the end of this unit, your students should be ready to move beyond one-letter one-sound correspondences and develop their spelling through using more complex patterns (Within Word Pattern Stage).

Teacher Resource Guide: A brief guide to using word sorts in your classroom. Explain the different types of sorts and provides a suggested timeline for daily routined activities.
Pre and Post Assessment and recording sheet, student data log.
