Sortegories uses an engaging format to combine essential literacy content with the principles of instruction aligned with Structured Literacy. Sortegories is:
Systematic. Content is presented cumulatively following a scope and sequence. Words used for the activities are decodable following a scope and sequence of phonology based on the structure of the English language and focused on frequency of use including high frequency words.
Purposeful. Activities provide repeated practice with target sounds by reading, building, and sorting words.
Instructional. Good practice is correct practice. With Sortegories, feedback is immediate, instructional, and motivational.
Data-driven: Each activity provides a results screen. Ribbons–blue, red or gold–signify the level of performance!
Sortegories is educative for teachers and students. Sortegories provides evidence-based practice for students while supporting teachers with consistent language and scaffolds that support learners.
Sortegories has been redesigned as an intervention or supplement for core instruction. Sortegories can be used for emergent readers and earners who lack accurate and fluent word recognition regardless of age or curriculum.
Sortegories 3.0 makes it possible for the activities to be used in conjunction with a wide range of programs and for a diverse spectrum of learners, including students with dyslexia, multilingual learners, and students with developmental language disorders (DLD).
Practice is the key to automaticity. Automaticity leads to fluency.
Practice makes learning “sticky.” When something sticks, it moves from short term memory (STM) to long term memory (LTM).
Practice is an accelerator for learning. It is the component of instruction that helps kids make up for learning loss. Curriculum that is cumulative and systematic based on a scope and sequence contributes to the acceleration.
Sortegories uses the science behind how we learn to read and translates the key principles into practice.
The Science of Reading refers to a vast body of research that reading researchers have conducted to determine how people learn to read. This body of research has provided educators with the information needed to understand how people learn to read, what skills are involved, how these skills work together, and which parts of the brain are responsible for reading development.
Sortegories is prescriptive. Students can be placed into Sortegories using current data or by using results of the Sortegories Spelling Screener.
Sortegories provides practice across multiple layers of word knowledge – from sound to syntax.
Sortegories provides the correct answer for each item. This is to ensure that students are getting “perfect practice.”
Sortegories uses a variety of supports to help students do each activity. For example, activities that require vocabulary knowledge have a glossary of the words to provide both an image and kid-friendly definition. For other activities, content explanations are supplied. For example, when Morph Sort focuses on the difference between -s meaning more than one and ‘s meaning possession, animated explanations are provided.
In addition to helping students, instructors—teachers, tutors, or parents—can use these scaffolds to pre-teach or review relevant content.
