Word sorts are multisensory activities that help learners identify patterns and group words based on different categories while promoting Vocabulary development. Learners can sort words based on a variety of similarities, including meaning, prefixes, and suffixes. This helps students make justifications and supports higher order thinking, and they can be done independently or with a partner.
