Words Their Way Games for Unit 2 Sorts 7-12 in Within Word Spellers (YELLOW BOOK)
This is a set of games to add to your WTW weekly or bi-weekly schedule. The finite games are designed to be made into "file folder games," and laminated as they are two pages. The one-page games can also be put into file folders, or mounted on acid-free paper and laminated for durability. My team decided to put them in page protectors and have one finite game on each side so each teacher can choose what is right for their groups.
**NOTE: Sort 10 is with short/long u. Many words from the sort are /oo/ and not a true long /u/. I made a finite game strictly with words that have the true long /u/ sound as well as one that follows the cards. When my students and I did the sort, we brainstormed words with a true long /u/ and broke the sort down into "short u," "long u," and "/oo/." It is up to you how you want to proceed with your students. I know I pronounce "flute" as fl-/oo/-t and not fl-you-t, so I changed my instruction for that particular sort.**
1. Finite Word (There's a clear start and finish. This one uses words that have the focus vowels.)
2. Finite Vowels (There's a clear start and finish. This one uses just the long/short vowel letters.)
3. Continuous (The game keeps going until you call time or a player gets rid of all their cards. This one uses just the long/short vowel letters.)
Materials needed: Game boards & chips/space markers (included), dice & WTW sort cards (optional, and not included). Your students can use their own sort cards that they cut at the beginning of the week.
