Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary and Spelling Instruction
This year students will be working with the Words Their Way word study program which integrates phonics, vocabulary, and spelling instruction. This program allows students to make their own discoveries and connections about word patterns at their own developmental level. By recognizing word rules and patterns, students will be able to transfer this understanding to their own reading and writing. Below is a copy of the parent letter which includes suggestions for ways students can sort and practice words as well as a copy of the Independent Word Study Form used for homework.
