Are you looking for an engaging way for your students to practice open, closed, and silent e syllable types? If so, these three centers are the perfect addition to your classroom. Young readers encounter words with open, closed and silent e syllable types on a regular basis. It is important that students have an understanding of how these syllables work in order to continue to grow as a reader and writer.

Benefits of using these centers with your students

♦Explicit teaching/review of syllable types with sort headings

♦Hands-on Practice to keep students engaged

♦Opportunities to apply the syllable types to form two-syllable words

♦Versatility: Directions are included for literacy centers, small group work, and whole class activities.

When your students finish these activities, they should have a better understanding of open syllables, closed syllables, and silent e. They should also have a better understanding of combining these syllable types to form a two-syllable word.

What's included?

►Center 1: 30 syllables to sort by type (open, closed, or silent e)

►Center 2: 24 words with a silent e second syllable - Students are to sort these words by whether the first syllable is open or closed.

►Center 3: 24 open, closed, and silent e syllables that can be combined to form 12 two-syllable words

►A print-friendly version of all three centers

►Directions, Recording Sheets, Answer Keys, and Cover Sheets are included for all three activities.
