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 Letter Name-Alphabetic Spellers, Global Third Edition presents prepared sorts covering the complete curriculum of word study for the letter name-alphabetic stage of spelling development.
Complete with 60 blackline masters, specific teacher directions, suggestions for follow-up activities, and spell checks for ongoing assessment, this collection of sorts includes both picture and word sorts for students who are in the letter name-alphabetic stage of spelling development.
The new edition includes new sorts, clearly stated generalisations for each lesson, step-by-step directions for each sort, and a new pacing chart and goal setting record form. The new edition contains 11 new sorts, including 4 new sorts to target challenging consonant contrasts (such as b and p) for students who confuse similarly articulated sounds, and a new unit addressing pre-consonantal nasals. 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.
Notes for the Teacher are found in each unit, providing placement guidelines and background information about the features of study. The notes also describe weekly routines that ensure practice and enrichment, while offering suggestions for literature connections and games.
