There are many ways you can use this packet.
Students can sort words by vowel sounds, word families, nouns, verbs, plurals, contractions, school words, calendar words, seasonal words, rhyming words, colors, numbers, shapes, antonyms, synonyms or homonyms etc.
Using brown construction paper, simply print off whatever baskets you want to use; laminate them, cut them out and attach a large paper cup to the back.
Print off the word eggs on a variety of construction paper colors, laminate and cut out. Students can work in groups or individually to sort a dozen or so words, dropping them in the basket and then rotate to another basket when they are done. Children can also alphabetize a group of egg words.
I've included CVC words, sight words, over 40 word families, + all of the Dolch word list words, as well as all of the Dolch nouns; for a total of 1,180 word eggs! There's also a blank set of eggs that you can program with your spelling words etc.
There are 31 sorting baskets to choose from + a blank basket.
