Last year, Kings Beach Elementary was awarded a grant for Palabras a Su Paso, a Spanish spelling program for students in grades K-4. This grant was very well received and currently we lack a similar English component for grades 2-4. Thus, Words their Way would help Kings Beach Elementary strategize a new approach to teaching, learning, and acquiring English phonics in a vertically aligned, organized method. Words their Way is a highly-effective method of teaching spelling skills, using explicit direct instruction, reproducibles, and word sorts. This program has been around for over 25 years, and the most current copyrights are 2016 and later. When students increase their understanding of how to spell words, meanings of affixes, and word derivations, they are better equipped to read and write while constructing meaning. By improving their spelling, students are able to increase their reading comprehension, acquire more vocabulary, and improve their fluency. With the onset of 21st century, traditional spelling practice and assessments may evolve. Since students will be using spell check and technology to produce their writing, teachers need to shift the paradigm from weekly class lists to individualized spelling inventories. Words their Way would complement Palabras a su Paso, allowing teachers to differentiate instruction in English and Spanish.
