Words their Way

Question. What are your opinions on/experiences with Words their Way for phonics instruction? I am conflicted using it because when I provide instruction, I find myself trying to provide strategies that go over their heads for remembering the patterns but most times, I have to advise the students to either think of the different spelling patterns associated with a sound, write them all out, and eliminate options based on what looks right or I hate to say it, memorize the spelling of particular words. I feel so awful when teaching long vowels to my second graders because I want to provide them with meaningful tools when it comes to spelling. Any suggestions? Thanks....
