This activity is a great review for closed, VCE, open and consonant-le syllable concepts! Each student gets a “CLUE” board (6 are included – different words but same concepts). You read the clues (concepts) to the students, they find the word on their board and cover it with a chip or use a dry erase marker to make an “X” on the board (chips and markers not included).
Students should know the following concepts: closed syllable, VCE syllable, open syllable, consonant-le syllable, syllable division, consonant and vowel suffixes, the 3 sounds of suffix “ed”, VCE exception, and Consonant-le exception. Where the final stable syllable is listed, students need to find the first syllable to make a real word. The words are getting harder at this level and you may need to work through them with your students.
You can also have the students use a dry erase marker on laminated boards to “code” the words (examples, divide syllables, underline digraphs, circle nasal chunks, box exceptions, etc.) They should also read the word to you. I read the concept, have them find the word, and then take turns reading the word they chose out loud.
