This is the 14th activity set in the “Breaking the Big Words” Syllabication Activity Series and first in the GREEN BUNDLE or Volume 3 (VC/V syllable pattern). This series provides scaffolded, research-based instruction on dividing syllables, identifying syllable types, and generalizing the skills to decode words and sentences. It’s perfect for small groups, differentiation, and intervention!
The Activity Sets focus specifically on a single syllable pattern and one or more syllable types. This set begins the VC/V syllable pattern and focuses on words containing “closed” syllables. The next installment will continue the VC/V syllable pattern, will introduce open syllables, and will include closed syllables. Each set includes strategies for navigating consonant blends and digraphs when dividing syllables. Anchor words are used as a visual support on each activity sheet to remind students of strategies and the placement of each label. Anchor word posters are included for classroom display to reference while reading unfamiliar words that may adhere to the syllable pattern.
To ensure skill generalization to basic reading, on the same activity sheet students “break” words (slash between syllables) BEFORE reading a word list. They then “break” words WHILE reading sentences. Sight words are controlled in the series and consist primarily 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 appropriate activities, and an instructional framework (Scope and Sequence).
