In keeping with the authors’ belief that the hands-on word sorting approach to word study is invaluable to teachers and students alike, this volume presents prepared sorts covering the complete curriculum of word study for the letter name-alphabetic state of spelling development. Complete with 60 blackline masters, specific teacher directions, suggestions for follow-up activities, and spell checks for ongoing assessment, the 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 eleven new sorts, clearly stated generalizations for each lesson, step-by-step directions for each sort, and a new pacing chart and goal setting record form. 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.
