These are six syllable types that make up the majority of words in English.
1. Closed Syllables
2. Open Syllables
3. Vowel-Consonant-e Syllable
4. Consonant-le Syllable
5. R-Controlled Syllables
6. Vowel Teams
What are the benefits in learning these six types?
English is a very complicated language, and teaching the syllabication principles will help your child/student chunk words down into more manageable parts. This, in turn, will help with overall reading skills and identify of spelling patterns.
This will also be especially beneficial for students who have a specific learning disability in reading. Research supports that teaching phonics is the most effective type of reading instruction for students with dyslexia.
In the upcoming weeks, I will tackle the different syllable types. Whether a refresher, or new material, I hope this series helps!
Spring! So happy it has arrived!
