I have seen such progress with ALL of my students this semester. I gave the QSI again before we left for break and I was so pleased with the progress from the beginning of the year to now. Students who came to me in August not yet having mastered initial consonants have moved on to using short vowels and in some cases blends and digraphs. Meanwhile, more advanced spellers who came in knowing some blends and digraphs are ready to work on long vowel patterns. I am almost certain I would not have seen this kind of growth for all students with the old "one size fits all" spelling and phonics curriculum that came with our basal series. I love that Words Their Way is differentiated and developmentally appropriate! If you are considering this program, you really must invest in the word sort books like this one that are appropriate for your grade level or age group. They are invaluable time savers and make implementing the Words Their Way approach a breeze.
And, it took WEEKS for delivery to arrive. Not sure why it took so long.
