Words at Work:
Developing knowledge about words and how they work is an essential component of any literacy program. In this area you will find information about how to develop students' skills in word analysis and spelling as well as information about effective vocabulary teaching. We advocate a developmental approach to word learning and provide examples of Powerful Practices that will fit seamlessly with such an approach. If you are using the "Words Their Way" or South Australian Spelling resources, you will find these activities easy to implement and a great way to strengthen your existing program.
