This new printable reviews some of the /er/ sound words. I made this to help DD with the different er sounds such as er, ear, ir, or, ur and our.
As many of you know, we have used (and loved) All About Spelling (affiliate link) for years! We stepped away from our beloved spelling program, All About Spelling, for a few months. This fall my older two have been using Spelling City and going through lists of words (that I create). I noticed that DD needs a bit of review on some of the /er/ sound words so I typed up this spelling sort for her. We cut out all the words on the page below. (Click on either of the two pictures below to download and print out the /er/ sound spelling sort pages.) She mixed them up and then sorted them into the proper categories:
After sorting them into categories for several days, I gave her the blank sheet and had her write in examples in each column. The next day she came back and added more words. Then she did the spelling sort again and on the final day she added in all the words she missed and filed the paper in her notebook.
New -er Sound Packet:Update: My youngest is now working on the /er/ Sound. I made an activity for her that you might be interested in. She loves, loves these games and begs to play more! Gotta love that, right?!!
