Decode! Book 2 Closed Syllables (4, 5, and 6 sounds) features words with consonant blends and contains fluency practice sheets and a game to decode single closed syllable words with 4-6 sounds.
Four sections are fluency practice sheets:
Section 1: Closed syllables with 4 sounds: words with initial consonant blends (l-blends, r-blends, s-blends, and w-blends);
Section 2: Closed syllables with 3-4 sounds: words with final consonant blends - -ct, -ft, -ld, -lk, -lt, -mp, -nd, -nt, -pt, -sk, -sp, -st, and –xt;
Section 3: Closed syllables with 5-6 sounds: words beginning with scr-, spl-, spr-, squ-, and str-, and words with both initial and final consonant blends;
Section 4: Closed syllable exceptions: words ending in -ild, -ind, -old, olt, and –ost.
Each page comprises:
• real and (with the exception of Section 4) nonsense closed one-syllable words featuring specific consonant blends;
• three sentences with some of the real words with featured consonant blends.
Student may repeatedly read any or all the real and nonsense words and/or the sentences. Research shows that repeated reading aids fluency. These sheets may be especially useful for teachers using the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction with older struggling readers.
Finally, a fun board game, The Camp Run! is included so that students may review the consonant blends studied in the closed syllable words in this publication.
