Editorial Reviews

This text is exactly what I would expect from the Words Their Way team. It is a very useful, complete, and developmentally appropriate approach to word study for the early grades.  It will be helpful both to pre-service and in-service teachers.  The suggested literature and activities are tremendous resources, and include step-by-step directions that are perfect for beginning teachers. -- Pamela Sullivan, James Madison University   Words Their Way for PreK-K is full of great educational lessons and resources. There are lessons on all major topics, which allow our pre-service teachers to expand their lesson galleries. It includes children’s books to use in the classroom, of which there can never be too many. The stories from actual classrooms and the writing’s casual tone help to make the text less intimidating and more teacher-friendly.   The amount of detail and number of resources in a text are key, and this text is packed with practical applications. Many texts dwell on vocabulary and theory and forget that people always want to know, “How do I use this?” This text answers that question. -- Karen Gooch, Miami University
