About the Word Sort Cards: This is an organized collection of word sortsto help students learn spelling. The word sorts are organized in increasinglevels of complexity, and you may match them to students in accordancewith their demonstrated spelling needs. You may determine spelling needsby a pretest or by the actual writing of the students (recommended).

Adapted from: The Science of Spelling: The Explicit Specifics That Make GreatReaders and Writers (and Spellers!). J. Richard Gentry. Heinimann. 2004.

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.
