A Day of Words (DVD)

In A Day of Words, fifth-grade teacher Max Brand demonstrates how he helps students search for, study, and celebrate words. Taped over the course of one day, we see distinct word instruction segments that Max has planned, along with many spontaneous teaching moments that occur for word work. Students learn more than just spelling skills or vocabulary knowledge; they become more naturally accomplished in their understanding and use of words in all contexts.

Spelling K-8

Spelling K–8 meets the needs of schools and districts that want to put systematic teaching in place without compromising the principles of constructivist learning. Children are actively engaged in spelling explorations, being guided by their teachers, forming generalizations that reflect their current understanding about how written English works. Suggestions are also offered for children whose first language is not English. This book addresses the issues that administrators and parents are concerned about—especially phonics and high frequency words—and offers teachers a wealth of strategies and resources to draw on.
