Camel Pattern Words follow a VC/ pattern. This means that in a multisyllabic word that fits the camel pattern, the first syllable is always closed, ending in a consonant, making a short vowel sound. If the rabbit pattern (VC/CV) and tiger pattern (V/CV) don't fit, then your students should move the syllable division line over a letter to form the camel pattern. Teaching your students this division pattern can aide them in decoding multisyllabic words. This packet has lesson plans for five days, two different games, and all the materials you need to teach the VC/ pattern.
5 mini lessons and all the following activities, along with two games are included in this packet!
Day 1: Code and Cut
Day 2: Divide and Read
Day 3: Map and Swoop
Day 4: Read and Highlight
Day 5: Dictation- Syllables, Words, and Sentences
Camel Cruise- Students determine whether or not words that fit the camel pattern are divided correctly
Concentration- Students turn over two syllable cards to determine if the syllables make a real word
