This collection of word sorting activities is for students who are in the syllables and affixes stage of spelling
development, typically intermediate or advanced readers and writers (Grades 3 to 8). These students are ready to study
multi-syllabic words–beginning with consonant doubling, plural endings and moving through the study of basic prefixes
and suffixes. The sorts in this collection present 24 words each week, selected according to their frequency of
occurrence in reading materials and allowing students to discover spelling generalizations or to compare syllable
juncture features and patterns.
