Editorial Reviews

Review

“[ Words Their Way] provides a major contribution to the field. It is superb for preparing teachers at the pre-service level and also supporting teachers at the in-service level.. Teachers will find the sorts very useful and can use them for whole class instruction, small group guided reading, differentiation, stations, and for one-on-one purposes.”
– Dr. Vassiliki Zygouris-Coe, University of Central Florida

“The outline of the spelling stages--the descriptions and examples of the writing samples – help the readers understand the stage and expectations of students at that particular level. [Strengths include]... The different kinds of sorts and information about English Learners throughout the text.”
– Dr. Stephanie Wessels, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

“I really like the examples it gives of activities for each type of speller. They are laid out for the reader/teacher and make it easier to implement... ”
– Keely Cahalane, Great Oak Elementary School

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing Toolkit Access Codes
By Brian Bolton on October 3, 2020
I received my book without the WTW Toolkit Access Codes, even though they claim the book is new. I am currently having to purchase it directly from the publisher, who stated you should have received it with your original new purchase. I am extremely disappointed by this and have attached a photo of where my kit should have been in my "new" purchase.
