WEEKLY SORTS - click the link to see the word version of your sorts

Sort 15    Sort 25       Sort 32    Sort 14

Welcome to our Words Their Way spelling program!

Your child is coming home with a page of sound sorts or word family sorts.  Please cut and sort them out with your child.  Talk about the sound patterns, think of other words that have similart sound patterns.  Click here for a sample sort  sample 1   sample 2

Tomorrow, a spelling notebook will come home.  Sort your words again, and have your child sound out the words and write them in the correct column in their notebooks.  Click here for notebook examples   sample 1     sample 2

For spelling assessments, I am only looking for correct application of the sounds/word patterns focused on in each unit - not always looking for correct spelling of the entire word.
