Lion Pattern Words have two vowels that are found together in a word, but the vowels are NOT a vowel team. They follow a v/v pattern. This means that in a multisyllabic word that fits the lion pattern, the word is divided between the two vowels. Examples of lion pattern words included in this packet are li/on, di/et, po/et, and many more!
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 v/v pattern.
**Note- the lion pattern is difficult, and should be the last division pattern that you teach your students.**
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
