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 multisyllabic 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.
