Description
For courses in Reading Methods (Supplementary) / Phonological Awareness and Phonics

In keeping with the authors’ belief that the hands-on word sorting approach to word study is invaluable to teachers and students alike, this volume presents a complete curriculum of word study for students who are in the syllables and affixes stage of spelling development. Complete with 58 sorts, specific teacher directions, suggestions for follow-up activities, and spell checks for ongoing assessment, this collection of sorts presents 24 words each week.

The new edition includes clearly stated generalizations for each lesson, step-by-step directions for each sort, and a new pacing chart and goal setting record form. Together, the Words Their Way core text and this supplement provide teachers with the knowledge and tools to meet the wide range of needs in today's classrooms.
