Words Their Way (TM) companion volumes, 2e We believe that the hands-on word sorting approach to word study is invaluable to you and your students. These stage-specific companion volumes to "Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction" provide a complete curriculum of reproducible sorts and detailed directions for the teacher working with students in each stage of spelling development, from emergent through derivational relations. "NEW " All second editions boast

  • Literature Connections making links between features being studies and valuable children's literature
  • Targeted Learners sections that clarify which students will benefit most from the instruction
  • Spell Checks and other Assessments available more frequently throughout
  • High Frequency Words receive special attention
Designed to help teachers working with transitional readers in the within word pattern stage of spelling development (Grades 1 - 4), the sorts in this companion volume help students begin contrasting long and short vowels and sorting words by grammatical and semantic features. The book begins by reexamining short- and long-vowel sounds with picture sorts, moving on to word sorts to thoroughly examine vowel patterns and assess students' understanding of short- and long-vowel patterns. The text moves on to dipthongs and other ambiguous vowel sounds, and finally to complex consonants and consonant clusters, contractions, inflectional endings and homophones.


Fantastic resource


This a very well thought out book in the words their way series. Easy to follow and great way to assist kids.

Responses from the field! A strength of each chapter is the Notes for the Teacher section that introduces each set of sorts. This reminds teachers about developmental appropriateness and pacing variations based on learner needs. Clearly the gradual release of responsibility model of guided instruction is promoted and reinforced throughout the text. Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College Chapter layout is excellent. Format is designed to include anything that might be needed for the lesson, and each takes you step by step through the process being taught, allowing time for students to internalize and firm up the skills and strategies.
