This word family sorting activity includes 2 different sets of sorting cards: 1) CVC words and 2) Long vowel words with a "silent e." Each of these sets includes one or more words in each word family with a blend or digraph. Ten word families are included in each set, for a total of 20. Blank crayons and crayon boxes are also included so you can add your own word families and/or words. Since there are no long "e" words formed with a silent e, two sets of "ee" words replace them. Two writing response sheets (one to laminate and one to copy) are included.
These sets of sorting cards are great for centers, small group reading instruction, or as a take home activity. I like to put magnets on them, turning my filing cabinet into a reading center. The bright colors and seasonal theme help to decorate the classroom, too!
