Word Study and Vocabulary
Word study incorporates phonics, spelling, and vocabulary. The ultimate goal of word study is for students to develop knowledge of spelling and also increase their specific knowledge of words. There are a lot of different ways to implement word work in the lesson plans like games and vocabulary strategies. Another common method for word work is having students sort words.
