7 Syllable Types Resources

It’s always so much fun listening and watching our  young readers figure out those “longer” words.  Many of our little ones are pretty solid decoding one-syllabe words and are now ready to learn strategies for decoding multisyllabic words.  So, really, what is a syllable?  Simply put, a syllable is a unit of pronunciation containing a single vowel sound.  “Syllabication” is the process of analyzing the pattern of vowels and consonants in a word to determine where a word is broken into its syllables. The ability to break a word into syllables helps students decode those longer words as well as helps the student remember spelling patterns.  Understanding the 7 syllable types helps students to become better readers and writers.

There are 7 types of syllables that occur in all words of the English language.  Every word can be broken down into these syllables.  These 7 syllables include: closed, open, magic e, vowel teams, r-controlled, dipthongs and consonant le.  After teaching each syllable type, having these posters readily available for reference in your classroom can help your students.  The Make, Take & Teach 7 Syllables Types Classroom Posters can be downloaded for free in my TpT store.
