Words Their Way®: Within Word Pattern Sorts for Spanish Speaking English Learners provides teachers with a practical, research-based, classroom-proven way to study words with students, and a complete curriculum for within word pattern spellers from Spanish-speaking backgrounds. The approach focuses on vocabulary development and linguistic commonalities and contrasts to help support students as they grow in English. Included are prepared reproducible sorts and step-by-step directions on how to guide students through the sorting lesson, make literature connections, and follow-up activities to extend the lesson through weekly routines.
Although this book is designed to supplement the text Words Their Way® with English Learners: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling the pace and scope of the book is helpful for English learners from non-Spanish speaking backgrounds as well.

Great strengths are the comparisons and contrasts between Spanish and English, the literature extensions, and the interim assessments.... I would adopt this book, and would recommend it to inservice teachers even if they are not in my courses. I think it fills a gap in material currently available to teachers.
