I was inspired by the Gingerbread Sort at First Grade Parade and the Dasher Sort at First Grader at Last to create a sort for our vowel work this week. Our focus this week is short e. I want my students to be able to distinguish between the sounds of long e and short e, so I created this elf sort. I will be turning them into cards and completing the sort whole group, but it can easily be used at a literacy station. Parents, you can print this out and use it to reinforce our study. Click on the elf for the words. Click HERE for a recording sheet.
