Teacher Tip Tuesday All About Syllables #1
What are syllables? In English, every word is comprised of at least one syllable, because every word has at least one vowel sound. The vowel sounds, and where they are located within the word, determine how many syllables the word has, and what type of syllables there are. There are six syllable types: closed, open, vowel consonant-e, vowel team, r-controlled, and consonant-le.
Learning to successfully identify and use the six syllable types will lead to better decoding outcomes for our students. With that in mind, Footsteps2Brilliance has introduced more games and pre-designed lessons for teaching syllables to our collection! Our new “All About Syllables Teacher Tip Tuesday” series will help teachers make the most of these comprehensive resources. Let’s do it!
