Why teach the six syllable types to older students?
Many 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and even 5th graders struggle to read grade level texts. One reason can be a lack of phonics knowledge. Teaching the syllable types to older children can help them break up and read many multi-syllabic words they encounter in the more complex texts they are expected to read. These activities are made to support learning the syllable types using more difficult words. Many of the words have two or more syllables, and may be a combination of syllable types.
This FREEBIE includes resources to teach the OPEN syllable type. It is part of a larger 52 page resource: The Six Syllable Types for Older Students.
