Words Their Way® Emergent Sorts for Spanish Speaking English Learners is a new text providing strategic assistance for teachers working with native Spanish speakers. Based on the same solid research and using the same scope and sequence laid out in Words Their Way® with English Learners, this companion volume begins with a series of picture concept sorts that teach students how to sort, providing guidance to help teachers make sorting meaningful. The text develops a routine for introducing the English vocabulary, helping students learn the vocabulary before they sort.
What does the field have to say?
This text is an addition to a well-known and highly successful series. The research base is well documented and the teaching strategies are classroom proven. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Patricia Kelly, Virginia Tech
I was very excited when I saw the title of the book, and even more interested as I looked through it. I think this is a valuable addition.
