Teachers working with primary students, second language learners, and special education students will find this book filled with ready-to-use, hands-on templates for picture sorting (helping students hear and feel the sounds of the words) and word sorting (helping students see the patterns of the vowel sounds within words)-an excellent transitional step toward word sorting!
129 picture sorts are in a developmental sequence, increasing in difficulty and complexity. The sorts are organized in 5 sections: concept, initial consonant, blends and digraphs, short vowel, and long vowel sorts. A brief introduction helps teachers match the appropriate sort to the developmental level of the students. Then, with teacher observation, the students can move through the sorts as their phonemic awareness increases.

This is an excellent book for early primary teachers! Sorts are a fantastic way to incorporate: fine motor (cutting, pasting), reinforce beginning literacy and cognitive skills, and allowing children to work independently! Teacher must-have!
