• Spelling Sorts
     
    Each week in the Journeys spelling curriculum the words are designed to teach specific sound/spelling patterns.  When there are more than one sound/spelling feature the words can be sorted into columns.  The first ten weeks or so of the first grade curriculum does not lend itself to sorting.  Spelling flashcards can be downloaded, printed, and then used to sort each night by your child.  
     
    Key to the Flashcards:  The black words are the spelling words.  The red letters are the spelling patterns featured for the week. Blue words are the header words for each column.  Green words are the challenge words and purple words are words that match the word family studied in each first grade lesson.
