A hands-on, developmentally-driven approach to word study that illustrates how to integrate and teach phonics, vocabulary and spelling skills to all students.
Words Their Way is a developmental approach to phonics, vocabulary and spelling instruction. Guided by an informed interpretation of spelling errors and other literacy behaviours, Words Their Way offers a systematic, teacher-directed, child-centred plan for the study of words from Kindergarten to high school. The keys to this research-based approach are knowing your students’ literacy progress, organising for instruction and implementing word study.
The 7th Edition features a new chapter on organising word study in the classroom, as well as new activities, progress monitoring materials and sample lesson plans.
Accompanying this book is PDToolkit, an online resource that contains interactive digital sorts and printable games. Word study games and templates in a printable PDF format are also available for all five developmental stages. Together with this tool, Words Their Way provides a complete word study curriculum that will motivate and engage your students while helping them to succeed in literacy learning.
