In keeping with the authors’ belief that the hands-on word sorting approach to word study is invaluable to teachers and students alike, Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Syllables and Affixes Spellers, Global Third Edition presents a complete curriculum of word study for students who are in the syllables and affixes stage of spelling development. Complete with 58 sorts, specific teacher directions, suggestions for follow-up activities, and spell checks for ongoing assessment, this collection of sorts presents 24 words each week. These are selected according to their frequency of occurrence in reading materials, and allow students to discover spelling generalisations or to compare syllable juncture features and patterns

The new edition includes clearly stated generalisations for each lesson, step-by-step directions for each sort, and a new pacing chart and goal setting record form. 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.

This collection of word-sorting activities is for students who are in the syllables and affixes stage of spelling development, typically intermediate or advanced readers and writers (Grades 3 to 8).

Notes for the Teacher are found in each unit and provide placement guidelines and background information about the features of study. The notes also describe weekly routines that ensure practice and enrichment, and offer suggestions for literature connections and games.
