Emergent and Early Letter Name Stage

Emergent students are primarily characterized as those who may not write at all; lack the concept of a “word”; pretend to read and write and generally lack letter-sound association.  Early Letter Name learners spell beginning and ending or prominent sounds in words; are developing the concept of a word; may confuse letter-sound matches (t/d, p/b, f/v) and are beginning to develop a sight word vocabulary.  Below are some examples of sorts that children will complete in this spelling stage.  Many of these sorts utilize pictures or individual letters.

            Concept Sorts

            Rhyming Sorts

            Beginning Consonant Sorts

            Letter Recognition     

            Consonant Digraph (sh, ch, th, wh)
