Words Their Way- New Teacher Survival Outline

When I first started teaching, I was very overwhelmed with all the word study programs I was expected to run. Each week, we had 30 spelling words, 10 root-based vocab words and the Words Their Way program. Like all new teachers, I had to start small with each program to be able to do them all at once. So I made this small, very simple outline to get me started. 

Words Their Way: WEEK OUTLINE
Monday– introduce
cut, name on chips
lay & say
sort
write down sort
Tuesday– lay & say
sort
write down sort
game: memory
Wednesday– lay & say
Sort
game: zoom around (each has 7, play same category until you can’t)
Thursday– lay & say
Sort
Game: Slap Jack (war)
Friday– lay & say
Sort as a review
Test (choose a few words and they must sort them by category as they spell them)
MIX UP GAMES AS DESIRED.
