The format is a bit overwhelming at first, as it covers the entire spectrum of development from emergent (JK) to Derivational (middle school +). Once you know what level your students are at, however, you can focus in on a couple of sections full of useful lessons and ideas. I have started using the sorts and my students love them. There is also an electronic membership included and we can log on to their website and do some of the sorts on the Smartboard in our classroom. This is the best way to teach phonics/spelling/word study that I have come across so far in my 12+ years of teaching elementary English.
