The Importance of Word Sorts
How are you this week? I hope you are doing well. Today, I would like to talk about word sorts. There are many kinds of word sorts: by sound, be singular and plural, by tense, by part of speech, by syllables, and more. Word sorts can be written or physical and both are important.
Not only do word sorts address multiple learning styles, but they also address multiple levels of learning. Word sorts don’t just utilize factual learning, but also ask students to analyze as well as compare and contrast. It is helpful to encourage students to develop higher levels of learning.
DUO Inspirations now has a word sort product, “The Nouns and Verbs Word Sort Set”. The Nouns and Verbs Word Sort Set contains three regular noun and verb sort pages, plus a bonus noun and verb sort page for written sorts. The bonus page has three categories: nouns, verbs, and both. (Some words can be both nouns and verbs.) Also, included in the set are noun and verb cards that can be used for physical sorts.
I like The Nouns and Verbs Word Sort Set, because it can be used in different ways. It also contains words that are often and not so often used as both nouns and verbs. This also gives students an opportunity to make a case and explain why they chose a particular category for a word. So, this not only helps with parts of speech skills, but also debating, analyzing, comparing and contrasting, and speaking skills as well.
Also, even though this word sort product is called The Nouns and Verbs Word Sort Set, the many word cards can be used for other kinds of sorts. All you would have to do is make your own category cards. I like it when a product has multiple uses and addresses multiple skills, don’t you?
