The bundle packet includes 75 games and activities that target teaching the 6 types of syllables in reading: Closed Syllables, V-C-e Syllables, r-Controlled Syllables, Open Syllables, Vowel Digraph & Diphthong Syllables, and Final Stable Consonant Syllables.

Also, the packet includes student word work notebooks that are teacher friendly in that they are at your finger tips which saves you a ton of time! These notebooks include strategically chosen words to give students the experience with a plethora of words. As students work through these notebooks at their own pace, they are able to master the skill of each syllable type.

The basic overall purpose of learning syllable type reading is to give students 6 reading strategies to aid them in chunking longer words into short, readable parts. Learning to read by identifying the type of syllable is the most consistent method to teach reading to your students, and the easiest way for your students to learn to read.

These 75 activities/games can be placed in language stations, or they can be played during small groups. So enjoy as your students learn another way to break the code to reading!
