Words their way

A Developmental Approach to Spelling, Vocabulary and Phonic Instruction

Assessment done 1-2 times per year

Developmental stages: emergent, letter name, within word, syllables & affixes, derivational.

Instruction differentiated for each student

No longer memorizing word lists, but learning the patterns which make up words

Based on brain research: manipulation of the word cards helps to solidify the learning of patterns and meaning of words (the brain is pattern seeking)

Word Study will take place during our Reading Block-great benefits for all students.
