Access Multi-syllable Words Through Syllable Types & Syllabication in 6 weeks or less. Introduce and practice the concept of syllables by breaking down complicated syllable rules into strategies kids can actually use for chunking, segmenting, and decoding larger words. So, how do you begin? First, use the initial pre-test of reading 2 and 3 syllable words. Once you have determined words that are challenging for your students (in 2nd, 3rd & 4th grade) you are ready to use this benchmark information for syllable intervention.
Often, without a strategy for chunking longer words into manageable parts, many students may look at a longer word and simply resort to guessing what it — or altogether skipping it. Now, accessing multi-syllabic words has never been easier. This resource is suitable for Orton-Gillingham instruction and other reading interventions with everything you need to teach students the 6 Syllable Types and Syllabication skills in 6 weeks or less.
The syllable-teaching order is highly recommended, however, some programs may suggest a slightly different order. Professional judgement is recommended for teaching your students- YOU know your students best! 🙂
Without a doubt, the goal is for students to have strategies to correctly read more complicated multisyllabic words. Understanding syllabication skills helps students unlock the key to vowel pronunciation and chunking long words. (74 pages)
