    Words Their Way

    This is the first year that I have been using this program and I love it. I also just completed a Univ. of VA course on the program (some of the writers in the program were professors there). Although it takes a good amount of time to do this program (I have 3 reading groups), it is worth the time. I have seen a big improvement in my students' spelling. They are even able to spell words that are not on their list because they know the pattern to follow. Our county provided us with workbooks for each spelling stage in the program. These books already have word sorts created so you don't need to make them yourself. On Fridays when I quiz my students, they have to write their words under the correct features (example long e versus short e). They earn one point for putting it in the correct column and one for spelling it correctly. If you have any specific questions about the program, let me know.
