Features & benefits
  • A complete curriculum of reproducible sorts and word-sorting activities for advanced readers in the derivational relations stage of spelling.
  • Reproducible sorts—65 in all—are organised by basic and advanced levels into 12 units.
  • Step-by-step directions include generalisations for each lesson highlighting what students will learn, tips for sorting and discussion, critical thinking questions, and opportunities to extend and apply learning.
  • Generative word study engages students in the examination of the structure or morphology of written words and how the spelling of words visually represents meaning units, or morphemes—prefixes, suffixes, base words, and Greek and Latin word roots.
  • Word sort lessons are now broken down into 7 sections: Generalisation, Explore Meaning, Sorting and Discussion, Extend, Apply, and Additional Words.
  • Clearly stated generalisations at the beginning of each lesson highlight what students will learn from each activity.
  • Extend sections provide follow-up activities that go beyond sorting and involve students in word hunts, listening exercises, and more.
  • Apply sections for each sort ask students to use the generalisation to develop strategies for spelling unfamiliar words.
  • English learners notes at the beginning of each unit provide guidance to teachers, including information on cognates and other related words.
  • Weekly and unit assessments allow teachers to monitor student progress.
