Imagine It! does do a good job of adding phonics into their program, however; all students don't all need the same word work practice at the same time. Some students may be on beginning sounds while others have moved onto chunks, however; Imagine It! teaches it all at the same time to all students. This is why I like the ASU word sorts, they are more differentiated towards students specific needs.

        I agree!! For my students who are right on track with 1st grade (or below) I would do Imagine It. The others I would do word sorts during word study time! I wish we had that flexibility.
