Word Study

Word Study is a spelling and phonics program developed at the University of Virginia.

Through word sorts, comparing and contrasting words, students learn to improve their spelling. The program uses a developmental assessment to place students.

To learn more about Word Study, check out these books: Word Journeys by Kathy Ganske and Words Their Way by Donald Bear, Marcia Invernizzi, Shane R. Templeton, and Francine Johnston.

The Word Study program, when used in conjunction with Open Court phonics, helps to provide developmentally appropriate spelling instruction.
