Magical Product Swap

I am one lucky lady!  I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to review an AMAZING product from Conversations in Literacy.  I teach a K-5 special ed class and it isn't often that I can find one product that meets the needs of 16 of my 19 students.  I know you are dying to know what it is.

 Word Sorts Short and Long Vowels is absolutely fabulous!  There are 24 word sorts that grow in difficulty.  The first sorts are CVC words and the last sort uses the words trunk, refuse, and quest.  I was able to pull out sorts from the beginning of the file for my graders, sorts from the middle for my middle readers, and sorts from the end of the file for my highest readers.

I honestly can't give this product enough compliments.  I love it!  It is black and white so it costs next to nothing to print.  The words are clear and easy to read.  The spaces are large enough that all of my students were able to cut out the words independently.  Here's a few pics of the sorts.  (I'm so sorry but I forgot to snap a few pics of actual student work.  It has been a crazy, busy week.)
There are 8 different sorting mats.  This keeps the students' interest and  keeps your assignments fresh and exciting!

All of these words are short a words.

These words are all short u, but are a little more complicated than the short a words.

This sort was more challenging and perfect for my more advanced readers.

Word Sorts Short and Long Vowels is on sale for 20% off.  Go grab it now while it's on sale!  You will love it!

*Giveaway Alert!*
I hope you will head over and check out Lori's wonderful blog.  She is reviewing one of my products.  Head over check it out, come back here and leave me a comment about how you would use my product in your classroom.  I will choose a lucky person to send a free copy of my product to on Friday.

  2. I love both of these products! I would use your gameboards to create fun games for my intervention groups to use. I would focus on ABC's and sight words!

    So much fun!

  4. I would use your gameboards in reading groups and centers.

  5. I am a K-5 resource room teacher as well, so always looking for things that will work for more than one group. I think your game boards look great - I would actually like to try having some of my older kids create skill practice games for the others. Learning in making the games and learning in doing - that should make a spot for all of my kiddos. And with typing, I can be sure they will be legible.

  6. These are all wonderful ideas. I will choose a winner sometime this evening and email them to a lucky teacher :)
