This is the 2nd Activity Set in the BREAKING THE BIG WORDS Syllabication Series. This activity 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. The second activity set addresses the VC/CV syllable pattern and introduces open syllables while continuing to review closed syllables in two- and three-syllable words. This set includes strategies for navigating consonant blends and digraphs when dividing syllables. Visual, anchor words are used on each activity sheet and on 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 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).
