This Spring Syllable Type Sort includes practice reading and identifying closed, open, magic e, vowel team, and r-controlled syllable types. Students sort real and nonsense syllable types under the appropriate heading. There is an optional recording sheet as an accountability piece. After all the cards are sorted, students can combine a blue first syllable card with a purple second syllable card to build a two syllable word. The idea behind this product is to allow students practice identifying syllable types in isolation, that they will then look for and apply when decoding multi-syllabic words. Knowledge of syllable types gives students tools to use when decoding multi-syllabic words.
