PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With the onset of advanced reading in rigor and exposure to more complex texts at an earlier grade, it is essential that we teach students how to decode "big words". Good readers recognize patterns and use rules when decoding multi-syllabic words. In this set, the concept of syllabication is introduced through the song, "Big Word You Don't Bother Me". Students use flyswatters as a tool to slap or break syllable parts as they read words. Inexpensive flyswatters can be purchased at the dollar store.
