Clip to ScrapBook #1

Just started using WTW in my classroom and am pretty happy with it so far. I do have a question that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I have a pretty advanced group of spellers (3rd grade) and after I assessed them most of them are in the syllables/affixes stage. I have a few in the within word stage. So, I've noticed that the sorts in the syllables/affix book do not cover short/long vowels, I'm assuming bc kids who test in this stage have already mastered those concepts. But what do I do about my state standards that say I have to teach long/short vowels? For those of you that use WTW, do you combine it w/your state's reading adoption? On one hand, I feel like teaching them something they already know, is a waste of time, on the other hand I want to do what I'm supposed to be doing! I hope this question makes sense!
