Word Sorts 7 to 9 consists of 141 word sorts customised for the third stage of spelling development – WITHIN WORD PATTERN spellers. This stage is generally suited to children aged 7-9. In this extensive app, you will find a range of word sorts for: long vowels; r-influenced words; diphthongs; ambiguous vowels; complex consonants; contractions; and homophones. There are also some extension activities involving categorisation of words. Word sorts take a variety of forms, including some standard sorts and some mystery sorts (letters missing). Students are both scaffolded and challenged as they progress through the word sorts.

Good for Tutoring


I used this recently in tutoring. I found that my client really enjoyed using partly because it was on the ipad which he loved to play on and partly because he was trying to beat his scores. It worked well for me because I did not have to create the word sort myself and he could work on it while I set up for the rest of the session. It was also awesome in the fact that the word sorts were all very clearly labeled and based off of Words Their Way. They were also higher level word sorts which I had had a hard time finding an app for.
My cons with app are that it relied heavily on having a "teacher" nearby to explain it. It wasn't something I could have my client use at home as each word sort was not explained. For instance there was a sort for dge/ge. If I tried to let my client do this at home him or his parents would never be able to understand why there was a dge or a ge at the end of this word. It also didn't keep track of scores, which I would really have liked. Some way to track how the client was doing and provide me with data would have been a great asset.
