Words Their Way is a highly successful and highly regarded program on word study for phonics, vocabulary and spelling instruction. It allows the teacher to assess and clearly identify the spelling stage of each student, and to tailor activities that engage students so they actively construct their own knowledge of spelling patterns. Words Their Way is a teacher-directed, student-centred approach to vocabulary growth and spelling development whereby students engage in a variety of sound, pattern and meaning activities, sorting pictures and words. It caters for differentiated learning in the classroom, rather than a one-size fits all solution. The Australian Supplement has been developed as a direct result of feedback from Australian teachers.

Testimonials

'Words Their Way is a fabulous resource for supporting curriculum differentiation. By using the placement tests, my staff have been able to provide every student with content that is pitched at the appropriate level.' - Stephen Green, Principal, Upper Swan Primary School, Western Australia


'We started looking for a spelling program that was going to be student orientated, hands-on, differentiated and linked to the student's reading and writing program. When we were introduced to Words Their Way we found that it was going to cater for all of these needs.' - Helen Ottaway, Primary Curriculum Coordinator, St Andrews Anglican College, Queensland


'Words Their Way is simple to use, differentiates for all learning styles and gets results.' - Peter Mahoney, Classroom Teacher, Mitchelton State School, Queensland


'Over the past four years, I have worked closely with staff, in a variety of school settings, to introduce 'a whole school spelling approach' using Words Their Way as one of the main resources. Words Their Way is an excellent resource because of the detailed diagnostic information that is generated by entering the children's spelling test results onto the database. It allows teachers to personalise student learning in particular areas of spelling and word study. The resources are a good starting point too.' - Cheryl Laing, Literacy Support, Carnegie Primary School, Victoria
