Word Study Strategies to Use at Home:
Speed Sort: time how quickly you can sort the words into their correct piles (be sure to check your answers)
Blind Sort: have someone read the words and write the words with correct spelling and in the correct column
Partner Sort: one partner calls out a word without showing it. The other partner points to where the word should go and the partner lays down the word card to check its spelling against the key word.
Word Hunt: find words from the sort in a book or other written work and write them down in the correct columns. You can also try to find words that follow the same rules as those presented in the sort and add them to your list.
Writing Sort: write the sort out, placing words into the correct columns. Writing the sort helps secure the spelling of the words in your memory.
