Words Their Way® : Letter-Name Alphabetic Sorts for Spanish Speaking English Learners a new text providing strategic assistance for teachers working with native Spanish speakers.  Based on the same solid research and using the same scope and sequence laid out in Words Their Way® with English Learners, this companion volume begins with a series of picture concept sorts that teach students how to sort, providing guidance to help teachers make sorting meaningful.  The text develops a routine for introducing the English vocabulary, helping students learn the vocabulary before they sort. 

 

The words for study are selected based on their phonetic properties as well as their usefulness in reading, speaking and understanding grade level content.  The text addresses the needs of the letter name-alphabetic speller, whether young or not so young.  The text is careful to include sorts more appropriate for older learners, as well as advanced EL students needing more concept and vocabulary support.

From the Back Cover:

One reality of today’s classrooms is the scarcity of materials available to teachers trying to support English learners’ literacy development.  The educators and researchers who developed Words Their Way ® with English Learners, a phenomenon in word study, understand this challenge.  The cornerstone of the Words Their Way ® approach to word study is the examination of the word knowledge students bring with them to instruction, building language and literacy competence naturally on that foundation. 

 

This approach is especially valuable for English learners, and this text is a companion piece of the series focusing on the specific needs of Spanish speakers.  It provides you with the reproducible sorts and step-by-step directions you’ll need to guide students through each sorting lesson. The week-by-week curriculum provided in this text will complement the use of any existing phonics, spelling, and reading curricula.

 

Word study is a powerful instructional method for teachers and their English-learning students.  Empower your students to grasp their new language at the word level, build skills to understand how English differs from Spanish, and develop the skills to explore word meaning through spelling.
