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

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 59 prepared sorts covering the complete curriculum of word study for learners in the within word pattern stage of spelling development. Complete with blackline masters, specific teacher directions, suggestions for follow-up activities, and spellchecks for ongoing assessment, the word sort lessons in this book help teachers to encourage students to think about words and reach conclusions about how the spelling system works.

This 3rd Edition includes a number of new features to support effective teaching and learning, such as clearly stated generalisations for each lesson, suggestions on how to explore the meaning of words, and application activities that ask students to use the generalisation to spell unfamiliar words and develop spelling and decoding strategies. 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.
