Words Their Way

I have given the Words their Way Assessment, now what?

Now that you know what stage your students are at in their spelling development, you can differentiate instruction based on their needs. One strategy you can implement is using word sorts. This can be done at guided reading or introduced whole group, then practiced at stations or the Daily 5 choice of “word work.”

And guess what!? The sorts are already made and organized by stage and lesson! In order for these to be more easily accessible, they have been moved to the following locations:

  • “letter name” & “within word” stages: downstairs workroom

  • “syllables and affixes” & “derivational relations” stages: upstairs work room.

There are sign-out sheets in each bin. If you would like any support in using these, Jenni would be more than happy to assist you!
