How can I use sorting worksheets?

Sorting worksheets are great for testing things that belong in groups or categories, such as:

  • categories (eg vehicles, furniture, buildings)
  • continents, countries and cities
  • v1, v2, v3
  • parts of speech (eg nouns, verbs, adjectives)
  • parts of irregular verbs (V1, V2, V3)
  • word stress (eg stress on 1st, 2nd, 3rd syllable)
