Guys. I have been so. stinkin. busy. But only in the best way. For serious. I have been a workin' woman. No but for real. I have been clicking and dragging until my fingers are sore! I just FINALLY finished these awesome long vowel sort activities that are going to benefit my firsties so. much. Long vowels are HARD ya'll! Specially long U. There's UE, EW, UI, U-E, and the list goes on and on and on and on. But! That's why we're here! Cause I'm a problem solver!
I know that long vowels and vowel teams are quickly approaching in our curriculum and I wanted to be sure that my students have a go-to practice, hands on, activity. I usually have these task cards set up by a pocket chart, but sometimes my students like to lay them all out on the floor and sort them. There is also a recording sheet to have for accountability and to use as a progress monitoring tool.
I have these set up in task car boxes, and my students get to choose which word sort they practice. I also use them as a quick formative assessment, and as an intervention tool!
I hope your students have as much fun with these sorts as my students did!
