Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Letter Name-Alphabetic Spellers is intended to supplement the text Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction. That core text provides a practical, research-based and classroom-proven way to study words with students. This supplemental text expands and enriches that word study, specifically for letter name-alphabetic spellers.
Letter name-alphabetic spellers are typically beginning readers. They have progressed beyond making random marks and representational drawings in their writing, and are generally using initial and final consonants with some consistency in both reading and writing. They are ready to begin the study of blends and digraphs through picture sorts, word families, and short vowels in CVC patterns.
Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Letter Name Alphabetic Spellers provides teachers with prepared reproducible sorts and step-by-step directions on how to guide students through the sorting lesson. There are organizational tips as well as follow-up activities to extend the lesson through weekly routines. The materials provided in this text will complement the use of any existing phonics, spelling, and reading curricula.
