Crack the Code and Read Like a Hero: Phonics Instruction for the Closed Syllable

This class focuses on learning about the closed syllable pattern. It is the most common of the 6 syllable types. This is a foundational skill all readers need to master to be able to crack the code to reading so they can read like a hero.

Class Experience

Students will learn what a syllable is.
Students will learn that all syllables have at least one vowel.
They will be able to locate the vowel in the word, and decide which sound the vowel will make.
They will be able label and recognize the patterns for closed syllables..
In my 28 years of teaching I have been trained in all kinds of different ways to teach students to read.  This most recent method of teaching students to understand how and why letters make different sounds when put with other letters and placed in certain parts of the words has completely changed my way of thinking.  I have seen huge gains in the students I work with in my brick and mortar school by teaching students the syllable types and how those syllable types work together to make bigger words.  
There is no homework, but I encourage you to continue to play the Roll and Read game.  I also encourage you to go on a word hunt in books or other forms of text for words that have the closed syllable pattern.
 1 file available upon enrollment
The Roll and Read game is provided Students will need something to write with such as a white board and marker or paper and marker. White boards and markers work best if possible because it is easier to see on camera.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will need to know most of the letters and their sounds for them to be successful in this class.  We will use some 2 letter blends and digraphs(ch, sh, th, wh) as well.
