This Syllable Types Word Sort, from Lil' Reading Scientists Literacy Solutions TM, covers all 6 syllable types, and helps students to visually discriminate between the syllable patterns that make up the 6 syllable types in the English language.

Approximately 75-90% of the English Language can be classified into the 6 syllable types. These 6 syllable types were created when Noah Webster decided to regulate the English language in the early 1800s, when working on his Webster's Dictionary, for the purpose of pronunciation and consistent division of words into syllables.

When students learn the 6 syllable types of the English language, they are then able to independently decode unknown words. This skill is a gift that they can use throughout their lifetime!

This Kit contains:

Syllable Type Header Cards, for sorting criteria
Word Cards with the differing syllable type patterns
