Designed for use as part of a reading curriculum where word pattern spelling is covered, usually in the late first grade to mid-fourth grade.
Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Within Word Pattern Spellers is intended to be a companion for the third edition of the popular text, Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction. That core text provides a practical, research-based, and classroom-proven way to study words with students. This companion text is a week by week curriculum that expands and enriches that word study specifically for word pattern spelling.

Responses from the field…
A strength of each chapter is the Notes for the Teacher section that introduces each set of sorts. This reminds teachers about developmental appropriateness and pacing variations based on learner needs. Clearly the gradual release of responsibility model of guided instruction is promoted and reinforced throughout the text.
Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College
Chapter layout is excellent. Format is designed to include anything that might be needed for the lesson, and each takes you step by step through the process being taught, allowing time for students to internalize and firm up the skills and strategies.
