1 About the Word Sort Cards: This is an organized collection of word sorts to help students learn spelling. The word sorts are organized in increasing levels of complexity, and you may match them to students in accordance with their demonstrated spelling needs. You may determine spelling needs by a pretest or by the actual writing of the students (recommended). Adapted from: The Science of Spelling: The Explicit Specifics That Make Great Readers and Writers (and Spellers!). J. Richard Gentry. Heinimann 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.
