Publisher Comments:

A tremendous timesaver for teachers, this indispensable book contains more than 200 word, picture, and letter sorts, ready to photocopy and use in K-3 classrooms. Provided are engaging categorization activities that span the stages of emergent, letter name, and within word pattern spelling. Also featured are decoding activities, assessment materials, tips from other teachers, recommended links to children's literature, and strategies for working with diverse students, including English-language learners and struggling older readers. An ideal complement to Ganske's bestselling Word Journeys, which presents a comprehensive approach to assessing and building word knowledge, Word Sorts and More can also be used on its own or in conjunction with any phonics, spelling, reading, or writing program.

Book News Annotation:

Ganske (reading, Rowan U.), a former classroom teacher, provides a collection of about 200 reproducible word, picture, and letter sorts for use in K-3 classrooms or phonics, spelling, reading, and writing programs. These categorization activities serve as a way to improve children's understanding of how words work. Activities span the emergent, letter name, and within word pattern spelling stages, with a few that look ahead to syllable juncture. They include explanations, directions, and tips for using the sorts, as well as ideas from other teachers, literacy assessments, and techniques for working with Spanish-speaking English-language learners. A bibliography of children's literature is included as well as books that correlate to each activity. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
