Responses from the field…

A strength of each chapter is the Notes for the Teacher section that introduces each set of sorts. This reminds teachers about developmental appropriateness and pacing variations based on learner needs. Clearly the gradual release of responsibility model of guided instruction is promoted and reinforced throughout the text.

Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College

Chapter layout is excellent. Format is designed to include anything that might be needed for the lesson, and each takes you step by step through the process being taught, allowing time for students to internalize and firm up the skills and strategies.

    Fantastic Phonics Builder!

    This is an extension for the book 'Words Their Way' by Johnston, Bear, and Invernizzi. I can't say enough about how great this book is! 'Word Sorts for Letter-Name Alphabetic Spellers' has hands-on materials for students to use for additional review. The materials include: word sorts, draw and label and cut and paste, word hunts and word banks, and other games. Students have enjoyed the hands-on materials for learning. It makes their learning fun. The materials are separated into catagories for easy access. Some of the catagories include: initial consonants, same-vowel word families, digraphs and blends, mixed-vowel word families, plus much more. This book with provided materials is something a teacher will use regularly in the classroom.
