PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your growing readers learn to "sound out" longer words by practicing the 6 syllable types.

There are 6 syllable types:
Closed Syllable - These are short vowels followed by a consonant, such as num in number, or vel in velvet.
Vowel Consonant e Syllable - This is your classic long vowel/ silent e pattern such as ade in parade or cide in decide.
Open Syllable - These are long vowel syllables that end with the vowel such as ta in table and spi in spider.
Consonant l e Syllable - These are at the ends of words like ble in table and tle in little.
R- Controlled Syllable - These have an r controlled vowel such as gar in garden and der in under.
Vowel Digraph/ Diphthong "D" Syllable - These contain a diphthong or a vowel diagraph. (Sometimes called "vowel teams") Examples are thou as in thousand and poi as in poison.

Once the children know the 6 syllable types, they need lots of practice blending those syllables into words.

This game gives children a fun opportunity to practice reading three syllable nonsense words in a fun way... with a bug theme! This would be fun to include while working on themes of spring, camping, nature, or any time of year!

I strongly recommend practicing any phonics skill with nonsense words so those strong sight word readers are actually practicing the skill and not just remembering what the word looks like. Sounding out words is a skill used for life, so it is essential for children to practice frequently.

This game supports this Common Core Standard for grades 1 – 3:
ELA-Literacy.RF.3 Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
