From the Leading Authorities on Word Study
Donald Bear, Marcia Invernizzi, Francine Johnston,
Shane Templeton, and Lori Helman

When students sort words they are engaged in the active process of searching, comparing, contrasting, and analyzing. Word sorts help students organize what they know about words and to form generalizations that they can then apply to new words they encounter in their reading. Donald Bear, et al.
