In honor of my series, Teaching Spelling Through Word Study, I have another word study giveaway for you that starts today! This week, my giveaway comes from Words Their Way. I have a special connection with Words Their Way because one of the co-authors of the book was my mentor while earning my M.Ed. in Elementary Reading. She’s actually the person who helped me fall in love with the word study approach.
She has offered up two WTW supplement books as giveaways this week. So really, there’s TWO giveaways here!
Letter and Picture Sorts for Emergent Spellers (Click on link to read more about this product and here for an explanation of this spelling stage)
Word Sorts for Letter Name-Alphabetic Spellers (Click on link to read more about this product and here for an explanation of this spelling stage)
One winner will be chosen for each WTW product. Leaving a comment on this blog post is mandatory. Please state in your comment which book you’d like to win. If you don’t have a preference and would like to win either one, please post that.
This giveaway ends Friday night, October 26th. The winners (one winner for each product) will be announced on my blog on Saturday, October 27th. Make sure and read the Terms and Conditions before you enter via Rafflecopter!

I would love to win the Letter and Picture Sorts for Emergent Spellers book.
I used words their way eight years ago when I was teaching 8th grade ELA in Virginia. Now I’m at home with my two little ones and I know that word study is the way to go with my own. I would prefer the emergent readers book.
Lori R says
I love Words their Way and keep checking them out of the library over and over.
Letter names- Alphabetic Speller is what I would like.
Either book would be great! Thanks!
Letter and Picture Sorts for Emergent Spellers
Amy Walker says
I would love to win either but I guess the one for emergent spellers will be most relevant for us in the near future! I have the Words Their Way book on my shelf that I borrowed from a co-worker that I need to get back to her!! This is a great reminder!! 🙂

We have a new parent coop bilingual preschool on the island Isla Mujeres, Mexico, Liberty School, and are in great need of any resources available. Our model includes using sorts in both languages for our beginning readers. Professional development for our teachers is needed as well if you ever want to plan a vacation to the island. 🙂

I’d love either one! I’ve used WTW with 5th graders in a school setting before, but haven’t used their materials with my preschool aged children before! Love it!!
I would love to try this and the alphabetic speller book would certainly help us on our way. Thanks so much for sharing not only the books but also the theory and the method that go along with them!
I would like the Letter-Name Alphabet Speller. As a tutor, working on the hunks and chunks of words helps tremendously. Thanks for the opportunity Becky. BTW, the widget isn’t working for me right now. Can you add me manually? firstname.lastname@example.org
Either book would be terrific! I’m new to the whole word study approach, and your posts are really helpful and informative! Thanks!
I’d love to win the one for Emergent Spellers. Thanks for the chance!

I would be so grateful for either book! I have a struggling reader!!
The letter name-alphabetic book would be perfect for me. I’ve been using the within word patterns book for th year with my students as we looped up from 2nd to 3rd grade. My struggling spellers could use work with the lower books as well. These books have changed the way I teach spelling!
Either book would be great!
either book would be fabulous!
Erin F. says
I would love to win Word Sorts for Letter Name-Alphabetic Spellers for my 6 yr old. I have just recently been introduced to a better way of teaching words to kids, instead of just the old school fashion of route memorization. I’m excited to use this with my youngest two. 🙂
My college professor at Penn State recommends these books! Either book would be awesome. Thank you!!!

I teacher mulit-age 1st / 2nd grade and have implemented word study with my class and convinced the rest of my team to do it also. I have 5 different groups and am working to get a variety of activities for each one.
The letter-name book would be great, but the emergent sorts would also be helpful. Thank you for all of the information!
I’ve been wanting to get started with words their way. Either is great!!!
