Words Their Way

Derivational Relations Spellers - Word Sorts



We believe that the hands-on word sorting approach to word study is invaluable to you and your students. These stage-specific companion volumes to Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction provide a complete curriculum of reproducible sorts and detailed directions for the teacher working with students in each stage of spelling development, from emergent through derivational relations.

This companion volume, provides word study for advanced readers and writers in the derivational relations stage of spelling development (Grades 5 – 12). The text focuses on spelling and vocabulary knowledge that grow primarily through processes of derivation—from a single base word or word root to a number of related words derived through the addition of prefixes and suffixes. Additionally, students explore word origins and word spelling-meaning relationships.
