Are you looking for a way to teach students to decode multi-syllabic words AND a way for them to have hands-on practice? A follow up literacy center for them to PRACTICE and APPLY the skill? All while integrating many vocabulary skills?
This file includes - 16 sets (8 two syllable words, 8 three syllable words)
· 20 syllable cards to build 10 words (the freebie set contains 10 two syllable, compound words to scaffold students into more abstract practice in the full set)
· 10 fill-in-the-blank sentence task cards (students use context clues to build words; they are numbered for recording)
· Word list for students to check/self-correct
· Written Recording sheet (that corresponds to numbered sentence task cards; students use 2 different colors for each syllable)
· Illustration Recording sheet (students demonstrate meaning by drawing a picture of 2 words and adding a label/caption)
· Crossword puzzle (students practice vocabulary skills such as parts of speech, synonyms, antonyms, etc)
· Answer keys
How to use:
· Guided reading word work mini lessons – use syllable cards to teach students how to “chunk” or “scoop” or decode multi-syllable words in texts
· Interventions – ready to PRINT AND GO, 16 lessons (which can span multiple days); simple, easy and EFFECTIVE for volunteers or paraprofessionals to implement in small groups
· Hands on practice! Self-correcting and covers SO many reading and spelling skills/standards
· Each set is the same format, teach students how to use one time and it runs itself for the rest of the sets – PERFECT for independent practice! Students feel success, even as difficulty increases (3 syllables)
· My favorite use is a literacy center that follows up from the guided reading lesson – students can rebuild the words in a pocket chart and record; solve the crossword puzzle.
· Cloze reading fill in the blanks and crossword puzzles allow students to practice context clues, parts of speech, antonyms, synonyms, etc.
· Differentiate for all learners with 2 levels of “play” (2 syllable and 3 syllable sets) and the level of activities (record/illustrate vs crossword puzzles)
· Students can take a photo of sorts and use Seesaw, Google Classroom, or other platforms to share and record themselves reading the words.
· Students feel SUCCESSFUL with this consistent practice and APPLY this essential skill in their reading and writing!
· Organize in task boxes, envelopes, baggies, in a binder with pencil pouch pockets – whichever works best for you and your students!
