VCCCV Pattern Words can be broken into syllables. Each syllable must have a vowel sound. VCCCV words always have two blended consonants that are pronounced in the same syllable.

VC / CCV or VCC / CV Objective: I can write where a word breaks into syllables by labeling words with the VCCCV pattern.
Blended Consonants Can you think of any consonant blends? bl, br, ch, cr, cl, dr, fl, fr, gh, gl, gr, pl, pr, sh, sl, sm, st, th, wh
