About this item
The ideal stage-specific companion to Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction this volume presents 50 prepared sorts covering the complete curriculum of word study for the within word pattern stage of spelling development. Complete with 59 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. The new edition includes a number of new features to support effective teaching and learning, among them clearly stated generalizations for each lesson, suggestions on how to explore the meaning of words, and application activities that ask students to use the generalization to spell unfamiliar words and develop spelling and decoding strategies. Step-by-step directions for each sort have been expanded to encourage active thinking and open discussion, with questions to guide reflection and generalizing. In addition, clear guidelines are included for placing students in the lesson progression, as well as suggestions for modifying the progression of sorts using a handy pacing chart. A goal setting record form helps teachers more accurately monitor students’ progress throughout each unit. The Words Their Way core text and this supplement provide teachers with the knowledge and tools to meet the wide range of needs in the average classroom.
