Word StudyAdapted from Words Their Way by
Donald R. Bear, Marcia Invernizzi, Shane
Templeton, and Francine Johnston
  • What Is It?
  • Assessing students spelling to determine what
    developmental spelling stage they are in
  • Studying words that are appropriate for their
    developmental spelling stage
  • Grouping students for word study based on their
    developmental spelling stage
  • Studying words through comparing and contrasting
    word features and discovering consistent patterns
    in words

  • Stages of Spelling Development Among Second
  • Stage 1 Emergent Stage
  • Random letters, scribbles, and some letters

  • Stage 2 Letter Name- Alphabetic Stage
  • Use the names of letters to write the sounds
    they want to represent
  • -Early letter-name alphabetic stage
  • use mostly consonants usually only
  • the first and last sound in a word (ex
    when is
  • spelled YN)
  • - Middle to late letter name-alphabetic stage
  • master most beginning and end consonants in
  • words use but confuse short vowels, but
    correctly spell long vowels that say
    their name can segment and represent most
    sounds heard in one-syllable words begin to
    represent blends correctly (ex miss is
    spelled mes great is spelled grat)

  • Stage 3 Within Word Pattern Stage
  • Read and spell many words correctly
  • Correctly spell most single-syllable short vowel
    words blends (pl, cr, st, etc.), digraphs (sh,
    ch, wh, th), and pre-consonantal nasals (ex
    camp, hunt, land)
  • Study chunks of letter sequences or vowel
    patterns within single syllable words (ex team,
    bruise, vein)

  • Stage 4 Syllables and Affixes Stage
  • Have mastered all of the previous spelling stages
  • Ready to spell syllable juncture patterns in
    words that contain more than one syllable (ex
    supplies, increase)

  • Word Study Strategies
  • Picture Sorts- putting pictures into category
    columns by initial sounds, consonant blends or
    digraphs, rhyming families, or vowel sounds
  • Word Sorts- putting word cards into category
    columns based on sound and/ or spelling pattern
  • Writing Sorts- writing words in columns according
    to the words consonant or vowel sound and/ or
    spelling pattern
  • Word Hunts- hunting for words in books and their
    writing that contain the same sounds and/ or
    spelling patterns in the words they are studying

  • How Can Word Study Help Your Child?
  • Comparing, contrasting, and analyzing words help
    students organize what they know about words and
    form generalizations about words that they can
    use to decode new words when they read, and spell
    words when they write
  • Enables students to construct their own word
    knowledge for reading and writing in a systematic
    way that is developmentally appropriate for their
    stage of spelling, and makes sense to them
