Thank you for your interest in this unit. I have developed these lesson plans and created activities with the assistance of the following resources: Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction, 5th Edition and Words Their Way: With Struggling Readers, Word Study for Reading, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction, Grades 4-12.
Please note: if you are interested in purchasing unbundled lessons from the four Words Their Way levels - Alphabetic, Within Words, Syllables and Affixes, and Derivational - you can purchase separate units in my store, at a lower price. www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Leslie-Dickson
Although this program is used more frequently with early readers, we are feeling the need in our high school for literacy intervention with many of our students. Currently, this program is being run in all English classrooms, grades 7-12 for the first 15 minutes of class. Therefore, the lesson plans have been developed with older learners in mind and run through a Monday-Friday schedule.
I’ve included a free, sample lesson plan with this preview so you can determine if this format and style is appropriate for your students. Each week includes: an outline of the feature being studied, detailed, daily lesson instructions, word sorts and activities to support students’ learning of the weekly feature. I’ve also included the suggested lesson sequence so you can read the lessons included in this file.
Your downloaded file will include: weekly lessons for Early, Middle and Late Alphabetic, Within Words, Syllables and Affixes, and Derivational Relations learners, as well as a suggested lesson sequence. Please note that all files are in pdf format.
