This is the fifth 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 decode words and sentences.
The Activity Sets focus specifically on a single syllable pattern and one or more syllable types.
This set addresses the VC/CV syllable pattern and introduces the “Bossy R” or r-controlled syllables while continuing to review closed, open, silent-e, and vowel pair syllables in two- and three-syllable words. This activity set focuses only on the /er/ sound. The next activity set will address /ar/ and /or/.
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 and 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 scaffolded activities, and an instructional framework (Scope and Sequence).
