A hands-on, developmentally-driven approach to word study that illustrates how to integrate and teach phonics, vocabulary and spelling skills to all students.
Words Their Way is a developmental approach to phonics, vocabulary and spelling instruction. Guided by an informed interpretation of spelling errors and other literacy behaviours, Words Their Way offers a systematic, teacher-directed, child-centred plan for the study of words from Kindergarten to high school. The keys to this research-based approach are knowing your students’ literacy progress, organizing for instruction and implementing word study.
The 7th Edition features a new chapter on organizing word study in the classroom, as well as new activities, progress monitoring materials and sample lesson plans.

provides a complete word study curriculum that will motivate and engage your students while helping them to succeed in literacy learning.
