The Choice Literacy K-6 Word Work Sampler brings together examples of teachers from across the country teaching word learning strategies from kindergarten through 6th grade classrooms. Rather than presenting a one-size-fits-all program, the DVD features teachers using many different instruction techniques for conferring, strategy groups, guided writing, and whole-class lessons based on student needs.

The 94 minute video includes examples of:

- Word sorting activities in a 6th grade classroom
- Individual conferences with young English language learners who are just starting to understand the links between letters, sounds, and words
- Strategy groups in 1st and 2nd grade classrooms targeting high frequency sounds and words
- Creative use of the walls for building word learning in the primary grades
- Word work homework discussions with 5th graders
- Teaching word choice as a revision strategy in a 4th grade classroom; and
- Using dictionaries as a tool to build connections between a principal and a 3rd grade class all year long.

Filmed over two years in 12 different classrooms from Maine to Oregon, these real-life teaching examples will inspire educators and provoke thoughtful discussions about the many possibilities for effective word study.
