This is my tenth year teaching but the first year I have used Words Their Way in place of the spelling program that came with our reading series. I cannot say enough good things about the program.If you are new to Words Their Way, you will need the big book that goes into great detail about this approach and how to manage it. However, this skinny red book is the book that has been my go-to this semester. After giving the Qualititative Spelling Inventory (QSI) at the beginning of the year, I placed students in spelling groups. Most students were in the alphabetic spelling stage and that''s where this book has been invaluable! If you teach first grade, I recommend getting this book and the next one (within a word spellers-the yellow book). Unless you teach language learners or special education, these two books may be all you need for your week-to-week instruction in first grade. I keep sticky notes in my red book to remind me where each group is at and every couple weeks or so I run the copies for upcoming instruction. (The best part is, most of the time you need ONE copy per student for the ENTIRE week of spelling/phonics instruction! That''s it-no other worksheets!) Then I just move the sticky notes so I will know where to pick up the next time I go to run copies!

I have seen such progress with ALL of my students this semester. I gave the QSI again before we left for break and I was so pleased with the progress from the beginning of the year to now. Students who came to me in August not yet having mastered initial consonants have moved on to using short vowels and in some cases blends and digraphs. Meanwhile, more advanced spellers who came in knowing some blends and digraphs are ready to work on long vowel patterns. I am almost certain I would not have seen this kind of growth for all students with the old "one size fits all" spelling and phonics curriculum that came with our basal series. I love that Words Their Way is differentiated and developmentally appropriate! If you are considering this program, you really must invest in the word sort books like this one that are appropriate for your grade level or age group. They are invaluable time savers and make implementing the Words Their Way approach a breeze.

Words Their Way is the absolute best word study program I have come across. It is research based, teaches students based on their individual instructional needs, provides helpful tips, ideas and assessments. Most importantly, the program emphasizes patterns in and across words - rather than temporary memorization for weekly spelling tests. Students need not memorize, they simply work with patterns in words and soon can read and write any word that contains the same pattern. Highly recommend!!!!

Content is great! However I wish the pages were the same paper as the second edition. This books pages tore very easily in the incorrect places when trying to remove along the perforated lines, and are not as high of quality of the previous edition

I love Words Their Way! The way they organize teaching phonics and word study is very logical. I like the process of having students really look at patterns in words, but not neglect "oddballs" or rule-breakers. I would definitely recommend this program to other teachers. My only complaint would be the font that they use for the word sorts. The lowercase "a" has the curl on top (just like this font!) which is not how we teach children to write "a" anymore. I do think they should be able to recognize both ways so it''s not a problem, but I would have preferred a more modern kid-friendly font.

Words Their Way
Reviewed in the United States on November 29, 2019
While I like the Words Their Way program, it is a lighter version of what I was expecting.There are 60 sorts in this book. Sorts start with single consonants and go through ar, or sounds.
And, it took WEEKS for delivery to arrive. Not sure why it took so long.

I use this curriculum to teach spelling and love the kinesthetic and visual approach to learning. It teaches the patterns in a comprehensive way, building upon itself as you move through the levels. Most notably, the pre-assessment is an excellent tool. If you are purchasing this, you will need to buy the administrators book as well in order to have the assessment and to learn the different ways to use this program.

This program is a GREAT way to explicitly teach spelling and indirectly reading. I started using this with my daughter because the higher level version of this book is worker so well with my son who has a dyslexic thought pattern. This program has helped him tremendously, as I attach each word pattern to a story, which is how the dyslexic mind retains information. For example, the ''ar'' word pattern is a pirate ''arrrrrr'', and the ''ow, ou'' word pattern is the ''o'' being a ball banging against the pointy ''w'' and ''u'' saying ''ow!'', but sometimes the ball is not bouncy so then it just makes the ''o'' sound. This program helps me bring structure to my approach. I absolutely LOVE IT.
