Materials: Horizontal handout of words spread out (three to four rows of four words) Document camera/Projector Or whiteboard
Type up the words horizontally on a word document Spread them out and increase the font It should take up the entire page
Set a timer or specify how much time the students have to put slashes in between the syllables Have students complete one row at a time or whole page Student(s) respond with, “In between the ____ and ____…” You can have one student at time tell you where to put the slashes or call on a group of students sitting at the same table The student(s) tell you to put the slash in between which two letters Give feedback Have another student agree or disagree with the slash and explain their strategy Cue the student(s) by saying, “short /o/…long /u/…schwa…closed syllable” etc. If students miss a syllable, model the strategy again by clapping or tapping out the word Reading the word You say, “first syllable…second syllable… blend” While you are saying this, you point or draw a half-circle under the syllable.
