PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a way to spice up or energize your classroom word study? Why word searches for word study? This is an interesting, fun way for students to recognize correct spelling and word patterns. As they find 2-3 words, hopefully they begin to see the pattern for the word search and recognize other words in the sort.

My students begin their individualized Words-Their-Way word study sequence with a "blind" word search as their first activity (word search does not contain a list of words). This routine activity is meant to be an engaging, fun way for students to discover their word study words and sharpen their ability to recognize words that are spelled correctly (a major key to spelling improvement). Students also demonstrate their understanding of sorting by sound and/or pattern as they record the words they have found. Because of the reasons behind the creation of the word searches, you will not find lists included with the searches, but can find the list of words in the Words Their Way developmental word sort books. This set of word searches is based on the Derivational Relations Spellers book (the blue book).

This product is intended for teachers who use (or plan to use) Words Their Way word sorts. (The books are amazing for teachers who implement word study!)

This download includes:
*60 Word Searches in two forms to choose from--
-1 per page with a sorting chart
-1/2 sheets to glue in to word study notebooks
*Sample Word Study schedule
*Binder cover
*Extras: Word Study tips and a Personal Words sheet

My kids had a great time with the first one they did. The only downfall has nothing to do with the product. The book I have is a new version, and the sorts do not match. They are just numbered differently and I have to match them. Some of the words are different, too, but it still works! Love the product!
