Trust Words Their Way™: Word Study in Action to teach your child phonics, spelling, and vocabulary. This powerful approach to word study encourages a close look at words to discover the regularities and conventions of written English needed to read and spell.
Keep your child engaged with these colorful 160-page consumable notebooks. Each notebook features approximately 36 lessons of four pages each plus an accompanying activity. Students study words by cutting, sorting, classifying, and pasting/categorizing them according to spelling patterns, sounds, word families, etc. Lessons consist mostly of sorting cards to encourage hands-on involvement that helps teach students to better recognize letters, patterns, and concepts in new contexts.
The heart of the Words Their Way: Word Study in Action program is the sort, or process of grouping sounds, words, and pictures that represent words into specific categories. Word sorting includes parent-directed instruction as well as independent learning. You begin by demonstrating how to sort picture or words cards by sound or pattern. Later, as children sort word cards of picture cards on their own, they make discoveries and generalizations about the conventions of English orthography.
The Level A Homeschool Bundle includes: Student Word Study Notebook, Teacher Resource Guide, Word Sort Envelope, and Parent Guide
