This is the 1st Activity Set for the BREAKING THE BIG WORDS Syllabication Series. This series provides scaffolded, research-based instruction on dividing syllables, identifying syllable types, and generalizing the skills to words and sentences.
The Activity Sets focus specifically on a single syllable pattern and one or more syllable types. This first set addresses the VC/CV syllable pattern and closed syllables in two- and three-syllable words. This set includes strategies for dealing with consonant blends and digraphs when dividing syllables. The next set will introduce open syllables in the VC/CV syllable pattern. Visual, anchor words are included on the activity sheet and in posters to remind students of strategies and placement of each label.
To generalize the skills to reading, on the same activity sheet, students break words (slash between syllables) BEFORE reading a word list to practice the informal “break” strategy with words and DURING reading sentences. Sight words are controlled in the series and are consist only of PrePrimer and Primer Dolch words. Each Activity Set of BREAKING THE BIG WORDS employs three levels of scaffolding, embedded differentiation, a strong visual component, developmentally scaffolded activities, and an Instructional framework (Scope and Sequence).
