Word Sorts

Posted in: Reading Interventions – Acquisition

Word sorts are an appropriate intervention to use with a whole class, small groups, or individual children. This intervention is intended to help with the acquisition of phonemic awareness skills. Word sorts can be used to categorize words based on common components. Words used in this intervention should have common sound or spelling patterns and should match a student’s instructional level. For sound word sorts, picture cards are used and the words are verbally stated. For spelling word sorts, word cards are used and the words are read by the student.
