Getting ready for the last theme in Reading, I created a Word Sort for the /er/ sound. Like Babbling Abby's (The Inspired Apple) class, my kids love a scavenger hunt idea. I intend to use the words in the same way. I'll place words around the room before the class arrives. We'll partner up during the lesson to hunt for the words. Each pair will copy words onto the recording sheet. Together they'll complete the activity by writing three sentences using the new words and illustrating each one.
