This fall my older two have been using Spelling City and going through lists of words (that I create). We stepped away from our beloved spelling program, All About Spelling, for a few months. 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:
My youngest is now working on the /er/ Sound. I made an activity for her that you might be interested in. This spelling sort packet is $2.50.
Once you pay for this packet, you will immediately receive a link to download this file (which will open in a browser window). You will also receive an email from SendOwl (the service I use) that says “Homeschool Den Purchase.” That email will also have the link for you to download this file. If you have any trouble with your order, feel free to email me — liesl at homeschoolden dot com ~Liesl
This packet contains 2 pages of words, a sorting mat, 3 board games with different combinations of -er sound words, and 3 -er sound worksheets.
