Word Study

Please click on the picture above for a letter regarding Word Study
We will be working on syllabication for the next couple of weeks in word study.  Syllables are ways that we split words into sounds.  There are 8 Types of Syllables:  closed, open, Magic e, consonant + le, vowel teams, Bossy-r, dipthong, and shcwa.  Breaking words into syllables helps students decipher words as they are reading, but also helps with spelling when they are writing.
