Based upon the concept of a "sort," the process of grouping sounds, words, and pictures that represent words, into specific categories, Words Their Way encourages a close examination of the regularities and conventions of reading and spelling English.
The included teacher's guide provides a lesson plan for each sort (one sort per week), with objectives, materials need, instructions on teaching the lesson, word box with challenge words, and a sidebar on building vocabulary. Lessons are arranged with Day 1 for introducing the sort, Day 2 practicing, Day 3 Finding Words in Context, Day 4 Applying the Skills, and Day 5 Completing the Sort. Teacher tips, challenge words, and ELL notes provided.
The accompanying Word Study Notebook is an integral part of the program. Each sort includes picture cards to cut out, which students then match to the phonetic sort being taught that week on the provided grid. 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.
A Word Sort Envelope is included; use it to keep all of the cut-out word sorts in one easy location. There is a place on the inside back cover of the Student Word Study Notebook for attaching the envelope.
Level A/1st Grade connects letters and syllables, focusing on word families, consonant digraphs, consonant blends, and short/long vowels.
This Grade 1, Level A kit includes:
Please Note: each week the teacher's guide references materials on the "Teacher Resource CD," poems to read in the "Big Book of Rhymes," and accompanying books to read from the "Words Their Way" library. These components are NOT included in the homeschool kit.
