This class focuses on learning about the Magic-e syllable pattern. This pattern is one of the 6 syllable types we need to master in order to crack the code to reading so we can read like a hero.

Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 2
  • 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 pattern for the magic-e syllable..
In my 25+ 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.  
 2 files available upon enrollment
Magic-e handouts that are 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.
Students will need to know most of the letters and their sounds along with the short and long vowel sounds for them to be successful in this class.  We will use some 2 letter blends and digraphs(ch, sh, th, wh) as well.
