About this learning opportunity

Words Their Way in primary and elementary classrooms is an interactive approach to Phonics, Spelling and Vocabulary. It can be an alternative to the traditional spelling program or an addition to phonics and word work.

This session will provide an overview of the program, how to assess spelling levels, and how to group students for differentiated instruction in interactive and fun WORD SORTS. 

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
