You may know that syllables are the units of sound we use to divide words. But did you know that the Science of Reading shows us that teaching students the six syllable types helps them to decode bigger, more complex words and become more effective readers?
This six syllable types (closed, open, magic e, vowel team, r-controlled, consonant +le) resource comes with everything you need for teaching syllable types to your students!
Use the digital teaching slides for whole group guided instruction when first introducing syllable types.
Next, work with small groups of students on decoding one syllable, two syllable, and three syllable words by using the small group printables.
When students begin to master different syllable types, they can practice independently by using the printable practice sheets or digital practice slides.
Use the included syllable-type posters at a center or designated place in your classroom where students can reference them as needed.
