OPEN and CLOSED SYLLABLE Identification and Construction will help you teach your students these important simple syllables. Closed and open syllables are the first two syllable types students should learn. Hundreds of common words can be spelled using these two syllable types, so our students can get a lot of practice even while their spelling skills are still in the early development stage.

Included in this pack:

**Every Syllable has ONE Vowel Sound Poster

** VC and CV Syllable Posters (a full-page set and a mini-set for student activities)

** Teaching Tools and Instructions To determine whether a syllable is closed or open, we look at the vowel.
OPEN SYLLABLES--In an open syllable, nothing comes after the vowel. Here we “GO” down the open road. The vowel is OPEN. There is nothing closing it in. It says its name (it is long—EXTEND FLEXIBLE MEASURING TAPE).
CLOSED SYLLABLES--Now the road is CLOSED, there is a barrel “B” or “T” in our way. Our open vowel is now “closed in” by the consonant barrier. Its sound is short—DEMONSTRATE with RIGID MEASURING TAPE).

You will repeat this scenario with the other cars and barrels. Your students can also practice changing open syllables to closed ones with their own cars and barriers.

** “I CAN” Instruction and Syllable Construction Mat

** 24 CV Cars

** 12 Consonant and Blends Barrels

** Open to Closed (recording worksheet)

** “I CAN” Instruction and Open Syllable & Closed Syllable Sorting Mats

** Open or Closed Syllable Worksheet dot the answer

** Build with Syllables worksheets for your interactive phonics notebook
