Williams, Cheri; Phillips-Birdsong, Colleen; Hufnagel, Krissy; Hungler, Diane; Lundstrom, Ruth P.
Reading Teacher, v62 n7 p570-578 Apr 2009
This article describes nine tips for implementing a word study program in the K-2 classroom. These tips are based on the results of four classroom-based qualitative research projects collaboratively conducted by a university professor and four primary-grade teacher-researchers. The article suggests that through small-group word study instruction and hands-on word work activities, K-2 teachers can keep students motivated and engaged in learning about the English spelling system.
