Publishers Description Help students make the link between phonemic awareness (hearing sounds in words) and phonics (the visual details of print) with these 55, systematic lessons. Using big and small letter cards, word boxes, and nursery rhymes--all designed as ready-to-go reproducibles--children manipulate their own letters to make words having high-frequency word patterns. Students then sort these for common word patterns and write more words using the sounds they have just practiced. Perfect for small-group practice, the lessons are arranged by vowel patterns to help teachers pick and choose what their students need. For use with Grades K-2.

Easy To Use Wordwork! May 7, 2007
This is an easy book to implement right away. I made a recording sheet and it was easy to use the lessons to write the words from the word sorts. My kindergarten students have fun guessing what words I will give them next. It gives students experience with word families and looking for similarities in print. I'm very happy with the purchase. My only criticism is that I don't necessarily use the lessons in order beecause some of the earlier lessons ask students to sort more complicated rimes. In kindergarten I'm beginning with very simple ones.
Great Book! Mar 14, 2007
I am currently student teaching and my cooperating teacher uses this book in her classroom. It is a great resource to have if you are teaching word families.
Not what I expected Feb 26, 2006
I recently switched to 2nd grade, so I bought this book to review phonics and spelling skills. However, I found the pages very similar to the Four-Block making words activities (by Carson Dellosa), which our school had already purchased. I ended up not using the book after I purchased it due to that fact. If you already have/use the Four-Block activites in your classroom, then this book would not benefit your class. If you don't have the Four-Block working with words book, then this would be a great substitute.
ULTIMATE WORD FAMILY BOOK!!!!!!!! Jul 12, 2005
Judy Lynch has done it again! No surprize there!
If you enjoyed her first book, you will be thrilled with this one, and if you are discovering this Reading Expert for the first time. . .congratulations!
Nothing else I have worked with has come close to providing as successful instruction for word families. . .as this book does. Lessons are sequential. Lessons are user-friendly. Lessons will make you want to teach them (and we all know as teachers that that doesn't always happen!) Lessons will leave your kids feeling successful as word family learners!
Make sure you get two copies so that you still have one when your teaching partner borrows yours and keeps it forever.
Well laid-out book, but LACKING Jan 19, 2002
This is a well-structured book. Each lesson has a plan, as well as the example for how to use the lesson. Despite its structured layout, I find I don't like the sequence of word families. The first lesson goes from -at and -an right into -an and -ash followed by -am, families which I find too complicated to introduce that early in the study of word families. Also, the letter indentification component seems to be out of place for students who are ready to learn word families. If you teach kindergarten, this book won't be usable until probably mid-year, and by the middle of the book, the lessons are easily first grade material. Overall, I prefer the sequence in "Words Their Way" much more to the one presented in this book. If you want a set of canned word family lessons, you'll probably like this book, although the repetitive structure would be boring to students after awhile and you will still need supplemental materials. You get lessons here, but almost no ready-to-use material (mini-books, word sorts, etc, are NOT included). I think there are better resources available.
