Words Their Way is a teacher-directed, student-centred approach to vocabulary growth and spelling development where students from Kindergarten to junior secondary engage in a variety of sound, pattern and meaning activities, sorting pictures and words.

Words Their Way enables teachers to assess, clearly identify and document each student’s spelling stage, group students with common needs and tailor activities to improve students’ spelling knowledge.

Words Their Way caters for differentiated learning in the classroom, rather than a one-size-fits-all solution.

Students can construct their own knowledge of spelling through engaging sound, pattern and meaning activities so they can gain a better understanding of the principles of spelling.
