A hands-on, developmentally-driven approach to word study that illustrates how to integrate and teach phonics, vocabulary, and spelling skills to all students.

Guided by an informed interpretation of spelling errors and other literacy behaviors, Words Their Way offers a systematic, teacher-directed, child-centered plan for the study of words from kindergarten to high school.

With its newly designed website that includes automatically scored spelling assessments and over 130 interactive sorts, Words Their Way, provides a complete word study curriculum that will motivate and engage your students while helping them to succeed in literacy learning.
