Every now and then we pull out our spelling word sorts. LD goes over the rules he has learned for spelling. DD is just now becoming familiar with the rules. We use these to supplement the wonderful program we use, All About Spelling. Here are some useful (free) resources I've come across for oi/oy and ou/ow words:
- (above left) Toy Chest Word Sort for oi and oy words from Oceans of First Grade Fun
- (above right) Chicken Run: ou and ow word sort at Oceans of First Grade Fun
- ou and ow words Finally in First cow and house sorting mat
- ou and ow word sort from Differentiation Station - cowboy theme
Thank you to these wonderful teachers--Yolanda, Jenn and Heather-- who have shared their hard work with all of us!
