Just a Sort Sheet--

Yep, no fancy title---just a quick and easy post from me to give ya a freebie if you'd like.  See, my school district uses Treasures currently.  Our spelling words are meshed into the phonics of the Treasures Reading....there's good and bad about the curriculum, but isn't there always?  Anyways--the sorts that the series uses are word sorts (which are great, don't get me wrong), me personally--I like to use pictures.  They have to be able to hear the sound and associate it with the sound skill.  Okay, I think I'm blabbering--and not making any sense...I'm running on just a few hours of sleep from last night---so I will just let you proceed to the clicking---You know what to do :)

**Oh, the pictures are doubled in order to help save paper.....


  1. This is so great! I love it! Thanks for sharing.

  2. YOU ROCK!! I'm doing these next week...YAY!! Thank you:)

  3. Have you ever done literature circles in first grade? If so, do you have any worksheets or ideas you could share? I have a group of advanced readers and I need to challenge them more. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I love your blog!

  4. You're welcome--and THANK you! :)

    As for literature circles, I have not done them for first grade. This year, as of now, my guided reading time consists of 3 reading groups (of homogenous grouping). I really like using non-fiction stories (not all the time), but do to our scheduling this year, it's one part of my day I can pull in science and social studies. I also have my students do a writing/follow-up to the stories we read. This also varies by ability. Some groups may be doing cut apart sentences that go with a sentence from the story, while others may be working on writing a compare and contrast. I'm probably not doing a great job answering your question...

    I think I may blog on how I run my centers (work stations and how I conduct my guided reading groups. Stay tuned! ;)

  5. Thank you for these- saves me so much time as a stay-at-home mom of three little ones! I used to teach and love working with them at home, but don't have the time to make these myself! Thank you, thank you!


First Grade and Fabulous
