Publisher Description

The ideal stage-specific companion to Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction 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 prepared sorts and activities covering the full curriculum of word study for students who are in the emergent stage of spelling development. Complete with 26 sorts, and dozens of other activities and assessments, this book provides all of the resources needed to teach phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, initial letter sounds, concepts about print, and concept of word in text. 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. The 3rd Edition includes enhanced step-by-step directions for each sort; additional assessments; expanded syllable, rhyme, and font sorts; and reorganized chapters to make word study more teacher- and student-friendly.
