- Have three letters, a consonant, an l and an e (there can be a /s/ added to make words plural).
- The e is silent.
- The syllable is the last syllable in a multisyllabic word.
Some examples are: apple, crumble, sparkle, giggles, brittle, vehicle, little, multiple, snuggle, rectangle, etc.
There are some words with exceptions to this rule. The exception occurs when the consonant is an s. It makes the t silent, and the sound is a /l/. As in bus·tle, whis·tle, and cas·tle.
This is a great syllable type/spelling pattern to teach, as it is fairly straightforward. I hope this helps!
