Words Their Way: Word Study in Action 2005 will help you teach your students phonics, spelling and vocabulary. This powerful approach to word study encourages a close look at words to discover the regularities and conventions of written English needed to read and spell.
The heart of Words Their Way: Word Study in Action 2005 program is the sort, or process of grouping sounds, words, and pictures that represent words into specific catergories. Word sorting includes directed instruction as well as independent learning. You begin by demonstrating how to sort picture or word cards by sound or pattern. Later, as your student sorts word and picture cards on their own, they make discoveries and generalizations about the conventions of English.
