Vocabulary Sorting Activities (English Version)
30 different sorting activities (enough to use roughly once a week during the school year) to help students studying a foreign language or English as a second language make connections between words, brainstorm for writing, or practice new vocabulary. Their versatility, ease of use, and the fact that they differentiate themselves make them one of my favorite things to use in my own classroom!

Each activity contains 4 different categories which students must complete with words that they know and fit each category. These are a quick, easy way for students to recycle vocabulary that they have previously learned or integrate vocabulary they are currently studying.

They can also be used to gauge a student's progress in acquiring language when compared over the school year and they differentiate themselves!

These work well as a class starter or closing activity. Once students have completed an activity, it is easy to use their work as a jumping off point for writing tasks or inspiration for oral drill and conversation.

Use them when you need a sub plan and ask students to write a paragraph or sentences as a follow up activity! These are low prep and ready to print and go! You can even skip the print step and just display them for students!

This is the English Language Version. A Spanish Language Version is also available in my store.
