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 reorganised chapters to make word study more teacher- and student-friendly.

Feature

A complete curriculum of assessments, reproducible sorts, and activities for emergent spellers (PreK through early 1st Grade) Additional assessments for syllables and concepts about print have been added to help educators determine what students know and how to plan instruction. Concept sorts extend vocabulary and conceptual thinking, and teach students the process of sorting using familiar objects and ideas. Sound sorts facilitate the systematic study of beginning consonants through explicit instruction. Activities teach phonemic awareness, rhyming, syllabication, and sound play. More syllable sorts are included in this edition. Updated rhyme sorts are now based on current literature. Revised font sorts contrast letters that frequently confuse emergent spellers. Revised letter pages with additional pictures and fonts help young spellers visualise the information presented. A user-friendly format makes teaching and learning easier Instructional units combine phonological and print awareness, alphabet instruction, and concept of word in text. A whole-to-part integrated lesson plan begins with text and works down to the smallest elements of letters and sounds. Step-by-step directions for how to introduce the sort, as well as additional teaching tips, are included in each lesson. Suggestions for English learners clarify how to provide accommodations and differentiated instruction based on students' language diversity. Notes for the Teacher are found in each unit and provide background information, learning targets, and teaching tips. Reorganised chapters make it easier to find reading selections.
