sh ch th Word Sort Activities (Free!)

This activity is for kids who are learning to listen for the consonant blends: sh ch and th.  These include various activities to practice the sh ch th words: picture cards and words, tracing pages, seek & color pages, etc.

As the kids were learning to read, I had a wide variety of file folder games and activities that I would rotate into their workboxes. A friend of mine is working with her son and I couldn’t find original file I had used… so I made a new set to share with her (and YOU!!).

And before I go, on Fridays this fall I will have a number of freebies to share with you… So look for Friday Free File Folder Games and Freebies! 🙂  Yay for alliteration!

Enjoy! 🙂 ~Liesl

Spelling Program

As many of you know, we used (and loved) All About Spelling (affiliate link) for years! We often supplemented the work we did in this program with spelling games and activities. The spelling book introduced words in a logical step-by-step manner. We loved this program and it worked SO well for all three of my kids.  They all made their way through the entire series!

The spelling program we use:(proud affiliate for this amazing company)

Here’s a post I wrote about the AAS spelling program back when ED was about 8 years old.  I’ll put a picture of that in for those who aren’t familiar with AAS.  During the first couple of years of the program all of my kids loved using the tiles you see on the board below. This program is really laid out logically and helped ME understand how words are put together and why! Eight thumbs up from the Homeschool Den (me and the 3 kids!!)


The All About Spelling program covers various rules about the Long A, Long I, Long O sounds, vowel teams, etc. but these lessons were spread throughout the series. That is why we used spelling sorts, games and activities to review these rules. (See more about our spelling packet in the next section below.) For example, silent E is introduced in Level 2. The OA and OW vowel teams (for the long o sound) are introduced in Level 3 and the OE vowel team is covered in Level 4.
