Pearson PDToolkit

Important Retirement Notice! The PDToolkit website for Words Their Way will be permanently retired on Wednesday, May 31, 2023. If you wish to preserve data from the online spelling inventory tool, you will need to download reports to a secure location prior to this date.

Please note that a new companion website is available with auto-scored spelling inventories, over 130 interactive sorts, and over 40 game templates. Visit to learn more.

Once the PDToolkit website is retired, you will be able to access all legacy pdf-based (non-interactive) resources on open sites (URLs to come).


We are pleased to introduce the PDToolkit, an online subscription-based resource that provides the tools that educators need to effectively plan and implement instruction.

Our tools will assist you in motivating and engaging your students to enable them to succeed.

Together with a Pearson textbook, the PDToolkit introduces technology integration by aligning text to online videos, resources, assessments, and more; specific to each chapter. The PDToolkit replaces previous CD-ROMs and DVDs once available with our textbooks and removes any download or program compatibility issues.

To request or renew access with a purchase order, please call (800) 848-9500 or email

*Please note the PDToolkit is an additional tool and is not required to begin implementing any of our books.
