This product provides more than 100 multi-syllable word cards for a higher-level Reading Drill, reinforcing the reading and spelling for less common R-controlled syllables. These word cards offer opportunities to read real multi-syllable words with multi-syllable word cards for -arrV-, -errV-, -irrV-, -orrV-, -urrV-, & -arV-. vowel patterns. In the pages, you will find pairs of word cards organized by R-controlled syllable spelling patterns. These pairs of word cards form sets that can be used for a Reading Drill or for playing a Memory Matching Game focusing on a specific sound-spelling skill.
The cards are designed specifically for the Reading Drill of a lesson that follows the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading. Whether they are used as words for reading during the Reading Drill, or as a Memory Match Game in a literacy center, the word cards will
• teach efficient decoding,
• encourage reading fluency,
• develop rapid, automatic naming, &
• provide opportunity for skill mastery.
THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IN THIS PRODUCT AND THE OTHER PRODUCTS POSTED FOR R-CONTROLLED SYLLBLES & WORD CARDS: THESE WORD CARDS HAVE SETS FOR MATCHING AND SETS OF WORD-SYLLABLE PAIRS. ALSO, THESE ARE THE ONLY SET OF CARDS PROVIDING PRACTICE IN -vrrv- AND -arv- SYLLBLE PATTERNS.
To use as a Memory Matching Game in a literacy center, simply copy each set onto a different color of cardstock, and cut the words apart. As students work in groups of 2 or 3, select cards, and search for matching words, there are multiple opportunities to read and re-read words that reinforce a specific skill or pattern.
In a duplicate set of the words, you will find a different type of word pair for multi-syllable words. Within each pair, one word is typed as a regular word, and its pair is typed in syllables, with spaces between each word part. For a student beginning to read multi-syllable words, it helps to provide a word in parts, and the student reads one syllable at a time. When the student reads the word parts accurately, the tutor encourages the student to “read it fast,” showing the word written as a whole. As the tutor flips the cards in the Reading Drill deck, the student should read the syllable parts of a word first, then re-read the same word as a whole word on the next card.
