Words Their Way (TM) companion volumes, 2eWe believe that the hands-on word sorting approach to word study is invaluable to you and your students. These stage-specific companion volumes to Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction provide a complete curriculum of reproducible sorts and detailed directions for the teacher working with students in each stage of spelling development, from emergent through derivational relations. NEW! All second editions boast

  • Literature Connections making links between features being studies and valuable children's literature
  • Targeted Learners sections that clarify which students will benefit most from the instruction
  • Spell Checks and other Assessments available more frequently throughout
  • High Frequency Words receive special attention

This companion volume, the last in the series, provides word study for advanced readers and writers in the derivational relations stage of spelling development (Grades 5 - 12). The text focuses on spelling and vocabulary knowledge that grow primarily through processes of derivation-from a single base word or word root to a number of related words derived through the addition of prefixes and suffixes. Additionally, students explore word origins and word spelling-meaning relationships.

Responses from the field! A strength of each chapter is the Notes for the Teacher section that introduces each set of sorts. This reminds teachers about developmental appropriateness and pacing variations based on learner needs. Clearly the gradual release of responsibility model of guided instruction is promoted and reinforced throughout the text. Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College Chapter layout is excellent. Format is designed to include anything that might be needed for the lesson, and each takes you step by step through the process being taught, allowing time for students to internalize and firm up the skills and strategies.
