PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Getting Started With Words Their Way

Everything you need to get started teaching Words Their Way is right here! Words Their Way is a commercial spelling program that teaches word attack skills to your students, enabling them to analyze unfamiliar words they encounter in their reading. Using this approach not only helps them master their weekly spelling list, but helps them generalize what they’ve learned to other words with similar patterns. This particular program makes differentiating instruction in your classroom easy and effective. In our classroom, it serves as the spelling strand used in conjunction with Reader’s Workshop.

A PowerPoint presentation will guide you through your introduction of Words Their Way for your students. The PowerPoint also comes in very handy for Back-To-School Night, so parents can become familiar with this program, too. Even though the enclosed resources were written for fifth grade, these resources can be used in any grade level that is using this particular spelling program, by simply changing the grade level on the parent letter. Included in this offering is:

o Words Their Way PowerPoint Introduction (7 slides)
o Parent Letter explaining program
o Weekly "Home Practice" Guide
o Student Weekly "Word Study" Guide

If you are using Words Their Way in your classroom, this will cut your prep time in half, especially in the beginning of the school year, when time, as we all know, is at a premium.

Note: For organizational purposes, we ask students to color the back side of their word cards page so that in the event the cards fall on the floor while students are working (which they just might), retrieving your own cards is easier if you're looking for your own color! The suggestions listed are specific to the Words Their Way program. There are, of course, endless ways to assist students with practicing and learning their weekly spelling lists (i.e. choice board activities, multi-sensory activities, oral practice, etc.) In our classroom we use all of the above to teach and practice targeted patterns, phonics skills and review, and decoding multi-syllabic words during spelling instruction.

When you need to mix things up a bit, or take a break from the ordinary, look for our seasonal spelling lists and choice board activities, available in our store, http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Resources4u.

Seasonal lists available:

• Halloween
• Thanksgiving
