Discover how much faster your students can learn Advanced Phonics information, such as the long vowels and the tricky diphthongs, with a core Reading Simplified activity, Sort It. Sort It presents all main spellings of a given sound simultaneously, using a graphic organizer that helps create a mental schema for each child of how the code works.

The child “returns” to this mental schema of each sound every time she encounters a novel spelling for the related sound. She, thus, sorts the new information into the correct “mental file,” so to speak.

In sum, Sort It not only helps students learn initial phonics knowledge more quickly, it also serves as a mental hook for any future phonics info to adhere to. An ongoing self-teaching tool!
