Short Vowel Sound

Unlike other word search programs, only SPELL-Links Word List Maker software lets you automatically exclude words containing spelling patterns of greater linguistic complexity than the selected spelling pattern; exclude words containing specific sounds and letters; search by spelling rule; sort results by grade level and word frequency; and instantly print word cards for word sorts, memory match, go fish, and other fun and engaging games.

Step 3: Sort and save the results of your word search in a variety of ways. Sort the words according to word frequency, grade level, number of syllables, alphabetic order, or position in word. Print word cards for educational games and hands-on teaching activities with your students. Print your word lists or save your searches as text files on your computer. Once saved, you can import your word search results into popular office application programs, giving you unlimited possibilities for instruction!
