assess long vowel patterns

Be careful that you aren't placing them too high. They need to be using the long vowel patterns in their writing. In addition to the Spelling Inventory, there is an assessment after each group of sorts. I would give the higher kids the long vowel assessment, as they might need review on the "other" long vowel patterns. Also, once the sorts get more challenging, we were told to put the kids on a 2 week cycle, so they only get a new sort once every 2 weeks so they have time to use and internalize the patterns. That will also give you time to make sure they know the vocabulary- it's not unusual for the kids to know how to spell the words, but they haven't a clue what they mean (and they don't care to ask!)
