multiple strategies important

I love that you approached the problems with more than a single solution. Teaching morphemes directly is useful (Word Build) but only helps with the morphemes taught, that kids don't already know, that they encounter in their reading. Word sorts teach kids to seek patterns, which is something they can do more actively in their reading.
