Word Study is basically learning about what words are, how to compare them and how to build them! In our classroom during Word Study, we make spelling words (word family patterns) with magnetic letters and stamps, do "buddy tests" on the words, sort words according to beginning and ending sounds or vowels and so on. It basically involves teaching phonics and spelling so that it will carry over into children's learning of other literacy aspects: writing, reading, speaking, etc.

Look up Phonics and Word Study (I think that's the title?) by Fountas and Pinnell - that's what most schools use.
