This packet is a collection of worksheets and activities that make good homework assignments for students working with closed syllables. It's a no-prep way to send home activities for extra practice.
The packet includes some CVC review, words with consonant digraphs, and lots of practice with short vowel words with beginning and ending blends. It also include some words with the welded endings -nk and -ng.
Some of the worksheets are familiar matching or writing words for pictures types. Others require more from the student. There are critical thinking exercises which require the student to categorize, come up with headings and write sentences. I like homework that provides decoding practice but also works vocabulary and thinking skills! There are some cut and paste interactive notebook sheets as well.
This set goes well with Orton-Gillingham type lessons. It has sheets that can be used with older struggling students. The preview includes a sample of the different types of activities included.
