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 photographic-pictures 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 of sorting cards to help students 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 K/Kindergarten focuses on rhyming sorts, letter recognition, beginning sounds, word families, and short vowels.
This Grade K, Level K 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.

Oracle Triple CTucson, AZAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Great idea... not so great of a deal!August 11, 2012Oracle Triple CTucson, AZAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 2Meets Expectations: 3As a classroom teacher, I used Words Their Way to teach vocabulary and spelling patterns to my first and second graders. It required a ton of prep work, but was such a powerful tool to help kids to master print and reading. When purchasing this program, I thought that it would have all the materials for each grade level readily accessible so as to minimize the planning and prep work. After all, it was almost $50. Not so! My BIG concern with this program is that although the "Homeschool Bundle" comes with a detailed, day by day teacher's guide, much of what they have recommended for activities are found on a Teachers Resource CD and Leveled Books Series. These are not included in the "Homeschool Bundle." When spending this much on a program, it would be nice if some of the components referenced in the Teacher's Guide were provided with the program. When purchasing this program, understand that you will need to supplement/purchase additional resources in order to make it work the way it was designed to work.
