  • -Word study provides students with opportunities to investigate and understand the patterns in words. Knowledge of these patterns means that students needn't learn to spell one word at a time.Word study" is an alternative to traditional spelling instruction. It is based on learning word patterns rather than memorizing unconnected words. A cycle of instruction for word study might include the following:introduce the spelling pattern by choosing words for students to sortencourage students to discover the pattern in their reading and writinguse reinforcement activities to help students relate this pattern to previously acquired word knowledgeTo implement word study effectively, teachers and students alike must become word detectives, engaged in an ongoing attempt to make sense of word patterns and their relationships to one another. Spelling "rules" are not dictated by the teacher for students to memorize. Rather, spelling patterns and generalizations are discovered by students.
