Pail Sort

This week I created an activity to help my students read words with a long a sound. I found small sand buckets at Dollar Tree and bought three. I labeled each bucket with a different long a spelling and then created shovels programmed with long a words. Students read each shovel and then place the shovel in the correct bucket. My first graders have loved this activity and many wait in line to be the next child to "play." Here one of my students is practicing his long a words.

  1. Thank you for posting that sort! Target has lots of cute pails that would go great with this activity. I'm headed there later today!
