Sort Stories: Leveled Reading Supplement to Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Letter Name-Alphabet Spellers effectiveness was tested using five English language learner (ELL) students in the fifth and sixth grade. Sort Stories uses the word lists and accompanying clip-art from Words Their Way in developmental, grade-level specific, short read stories. Strategies of Sort Stories include reading to the students, student read-aloud, choral reading, re-reads, and speed-reading. The program was taught for 10 to 15 minutes per day, four to five days a week, for a period of eight months, using one Sort Story and accompanying Words Their Way word sort per week. Results of the study showed the students had significant increase in their reading grade level, fluency, vocabulary, reading accuracy, comprehension, and reading speed as a result of the Sort Stories curriculum. Though Sort Stories can be used alone, used with the Words Their Way curriculum, Sort Stories provides teachers with an effective literacy curriculum that combines the strategies of word study with reading to build students' English language skills.
