R-Controlled Vowels

Sorting at the Circus

Over the next few weeks my students will be joining in on some circus fun as they sort words with the r-controlled vowels: ar, er, ir, or, ur, and ore. 

I have created a total of 144 words cards - 24 for each of the r-controlled vowels above, sorting mats, read and write the room recording sheets, alphabetized answer keys for each sort, word searches, and a few more sort pages, as well as a "3-Ring Circus" game - (my version of BAM) for this circus- themed sort.
If r-controlled vowels are something your students could use more practice with as well, you might want to check this pack out in my TPT store.
