About the Word Sort Cards: This is an organized collection of word sorts
to help students learn spelling. The word sorts are organized in increasing
levels of complexity, and you may match them to students in accordance
with their demonstrated spelling needs. You may determine spelling needs
by a pretest or by the actual writing of the students (recommended).
You may decide to do whole-class, teacher-led
word sorts to start out, modeling how to
use the guide words on top of each sort.
Each Word Sort has a heading. The heading
names the spelling concepts, and then
gives two or three guide words. The guide
words indicate the words that represent the
pattern of that Word Sort.
Students should write their Word Sorts into columns. They should use
paper, whiteboards, or a computer. Tactile experience (writing or typing)
reinforces spelling, so if students work together, each student should write
or type.
