Editorial Reviews

Review

Responses from the field…

A strength of each chapter is the Notes for the Teacher section that introduces each set of sorts.  This reminds teachers about developmental appropriateness and pacing variations based on learner needs.  Clearly the gradual release of responsibility model of guided instruction is promoted and reinforced throughout the text.

Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College

 

Chapter layout is excellent.  Format is designed to include anything that might be needed for the lesson, and each takes you step by step through the process being taught, allowing time for students to internalize and firm up the skills and strategies.

Susan K. McCloskey, California State University, Fresno

This program, Words Their Way, has been a tremendous help in my classroom. After giving the spelling test to determine what kind of spellers the students are (alphabetic, within word or derivational), I was able to break down my lessons and develop better spelling habits for my students. The book is completely thorough in that it gives the actual lesson as well as RTI-based interventions for the kids who still don't get it or who need more of a challenge. The books are scaffolded on each other, yet each lesson is usable in and of itself. My students are learning how to spell with mehtods that make sense, I'm seeing great results and there are no more weekly spelling lists. The words are real-life, ones that are used naturally in their writing. Highly recommended, as long as you know what kind of speller you're working with (determined by the information spelling test).

I have been using this series for 3 years so my students have spelling words at their level. I love the way the books lay out all of the sorts and explain how each one works. My students' spelling have all improved greatly from it!

If you truly plan on implementing Words Their Way...you MUST have these supplemental books. Worth the small investment. Pages can be torn out, or spiral bound or put in a 3-ring binder for ease in copying. They do go hand in hand with original WTW book, so keep them both for creating word lists and games.

This book is excellent for helping teachers of students who are behind the rest of the class in reading or who need extra help with phonics, spelling or decoding. This book contains word and spelling patterns that are most useful in helping a child better understand the structure of language and how to use it.

If you teach grades K-5 you must have all of the WTW materials. They are essential! I am an intervention specialist with almost 20 years of experience and this is the best spelling/word study program!

In teaching adults ESL, I find it very useful in that it provides a mixture for the student that has challenges with the english language. The Sort tables are very helpful in identifying by picture what the work is and their meaning.

What a great spelling support -- especially for students who are struggling with the concepts! It works as a stand alone item, but I'd recommending also purchasing the Words Their Way Teaching book to get the most out of it.
