This is a wonderful book filled with ideas. It also comes with an online PDToolkit referenced throughout the book. It was to be up and running on July 2, 2011. I was unable to find a way to log on. I sent an email through their customer service and did not receive a reply. I spent an hour and a half before finally connecting to someone who could answer my question. The Toolkit has not been finished and won't be until "late summer". I suggested that they correct the website. If you should have issues the phone # is 1-800-848-9500. Select invoice and billing.

I am a huge fan of the old Words Your Way book and CD. The web site does not work and you will receive no additional resources. You are much better off ordering the old CD and books. They should not have sold this book until the web site is completed. Oh and by the way, you will have to pay an additional fee for the web resource after the first 6 months. This is not worth the cost!!!!!!!

I bought the 5th edition of Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction (5th Edition) (Words Their Way Series)for our teachers and we were all excited about the PD Toolkit. However, besides it not being available until just recently, it is useless. You can't personalize anything, there is no help available, no contact info - it's just extremely unfriendly. My teachers are very frustrated. Wish I would have purchased an older edition with the CD. I contacted Pearson via email and I got a form "letter" and nothing else.

I teach elementary special education, and this is a must-have for what I do. Our school bought one copy per grade level. I liked it so much that I purchased my own copy. Yes, it's expensive, but it's full of information. You won't know how you taught without it.

After reading and trialling many spelling programs this one seems like the best fit for all my students.
I like the way it is presented and easy to follow with it all making sense.

Thank you for providing feedback about the online resource site that accompanies Words Their Way. Phase One of the website offers a collection of new videos and interactive sorts that enhance the content in the book and that were not offered with previous editions of the book. The site is NOW live (Amazon does not allow external links in a review so I cannot repeat the URL here.) Among other key features, teachers now have the ability to use the word sorts in their Smartboards with their students -- a feature we added based on requests from our customers. With the flexibility that technology offers, we plan to continue to enhance the website by posting new resources as they are developed and we intend to continue to improve and expand the resources around Words Their Way on the website. We appreciate your loyalty to Words Their Way and in recognition that early users of our new online resource have not had access to a complete site due to unplanned delays, Pearson is giving a six month extension to all users who register before December 31, 2011. We sincerely apologize for the delays in developing the website and the frustration it has caused our customers.

Format: Paperback
The text has some updates in areas like vocabulary instruction. Unfortunately, the online PD Toolkit is poorly constructed, not as interactive as the CD Rom was, and it is very difficult to find the sorts you need. For example, when I "check" "Emergent Stage" and "Sorts"...NOTHING comes up on the online resource. Very frustrating and I will stick to the 4th edition until changes are made.

The information within the book is absolutely great. It's easy to read and there are many resources within the books (Appendixes).

The only drawback and reason I gave 3 stars; my disappointment in the PDtoolkit that they eagerly promote "Ground-breaking online PDtoolkit...." The publishers make it sound so easy to use and to claim that there are tons of additional resources, not included with the book, but I could not find them.

I am so thankful that I did NOT pay to subsribe to this service. It's very difficult to use. I was excited about the option of watching the videos (as I am very visual), but the videos aren't helpful, at all.They seem to be random classroom commentaries or discussions, rather than actual step by step videos of how to use,( all new how-to videos, as the publishers claim)or implementation of the program... They claim to have over 40 videos, but I kept seeing the same videos over and over. You have to be quite specific in your choice of words when searching for a specific video. I would often get a message, "could not find information" and I had typed in the words "emergent stage".

I highly recommend the book if this is your introduction to Words Their Way, but do not purchase it for the PDtoolkit.Unless it improves in ease of use and there are actually more purposeful and useful resources that aren't offered in the book, I won't purchase a subscription...
