This is a collection of words used in Words Their Way sorts to practice different spelling patterns. I made this product alongside Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Within Pattern Spellers.
Unit I: Picture Sorts for Short- and Long-Vowel Sounds
Unit II: Word Sorts Contrasting Short- and Long-Vowel Sounds and Patterns (CVC and CVCe)
Unit III: Common Long-Vowel Patterns (CVCe and CVVC)
Unit IV: Less Common Long-Vowel Patterns
Unit V: R-Influenced Vowel Patterns
Unit VI: Diphthongs and Other Ambiguous Vowel Sounds
Unit VII: Beginning and Ending Complex Consonants and Consonant Clusters
Unit VIII: High-Frequency Words and Contractions
Unit IX: Inflectional Endings for Plural and Past Tense
Unit X: Homophones
This product was created with two copies of each word search on a sheet of paper. Just print, cut and hand out! Students love the opportunity to practice their sort words through a word search. Who doesn't love word searches?
Be on the lookout for the other Within Word Pattern Spellers, Letter Name - Alphabetic, Syllables and Affixes Spellers, and Derivational Relations Spellers Sort Words and other related products, such as, Fill-in-the-Blank and Word Searches and Connect Four.
Even if you don't use Words Their Way, you can use these spelling activities within small groups to teach different spelling patterns and phonics.
