Format: Paperback
I acquired this book on the recommendation of one of my professors. I had heard great things about the program's effectiveness with younger readers, but was not convinced I could adapt it to suit the needs of older students with reading difficulties. However, because my students dislike worksheets as much as I do, I am constantly searching for hands-on activities that developed word attack and spelling skills. Donald Bear et al provided me with numerous games and word sorts to use with my reading classes. It has also been possible to extend the curriculum to a higher level by creating additional word sorts that focus on the specific issue of high school readers/spellers. In my opinion, this book is an essential resource for every elementary teacher, language arts teacher, reading specialist, or tutor.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Bear and his co-authors describe the stages most children go through as they learn to read, and they provide specific teaching methods that help students move from where they are to the next level of accomplishment.
Extensive research has indicated that a child's spelling is a window to his level of learning. This book provides diagnostic tests that only take a few minutes to give, but provide specific and valuable information about the child's level of literacy.
I have required my college students in Tests & Measurements to purchase this book and to perform tests on children.
Though the introductory chapters seem to be a "heavy read" to some, this book is clear, well-written, and practical. Teachers and curriculum supervisors would be well advised to understand the material set forth in this volume.

Format: Paperback
This is a good reference for educators to use when planning their word study lessons. I use the error guides to determine my skills-based spelling groups; this is very time saving and provides great insight into the individual child. I also use the McGuffy spelling assessment. Between the two, I have a great grasp on my students' word study skills. There are many great activities and games for all abilities. This is a good source for open and closed word sorts. Charts and game are very useful. Definitely teacher-friendly and well laid out.

Format: Paperback
As a first year title 1 reading teacher I was feeling overwhelmed with responsibilities and stressed out over where to begin. A coworker let me borrow this book one day and I ordered it that night. Finally I had a sense of where to start and what to do next! This book is full of ideas for teaching reading and writing in fun and creative ways. It is also a wonderful resource for deciphering where your students are in their learning and what they need next.

Format: Paperback
As a beginning teacher I feel that this book is a must have! I read and used this book in two of my graduate courses and witnessed first hand through a tutoring program the positive impact that the suggested WTW activities can have on beginning to advanced readers. As I now near the end of my graduate program for elementary education, I feel certain that I will use this book in my future classroom because it has so many wonderful and interesting activities. I have read this book several times and with each reading I feel that I gain something new from it. I cannot imagine why any teacher would ever sell this useful resource.
