To use our knowledge of syllable patterns to decode longer words!
Look at these words: grumble goggles grum/ble gog/gles Remember: Divide the word into syllables before the consonant plus le. Pronounce the final vowel sound as a schwa (ŭ) Consonant plus le ( review of lesson 6 )
Look at these words: messenger marriage recommend Notice that these words all have the VCCV syllable pattern. Remember: When we talk about medial consonants we mean the consonants in the middle. The double consonants stand for one sound and the words are divided into syllables between the 2 consonants. Turn and tell your partner where to divide the words above into syllables and decide how many syllables there are. mes/sen/ger mar/riage rec/om/mend
Look at these words: velvety withering These words have the VCCV syllable pattern. Remember: When each consonant in the middle of the word stands for its own sound, as in velvety, the syllables are divided between the 2 consonants When the consonants in the middle of the word combine to make one sound, as in withering, the two consonants stay together. Turn to your partner and divide the 2 words above into syllables. vel/vet/y with/er/ing
If the two consonants in the middle combine to make one new sound (th, sh, ph, ch, ck, wr, etc.) then the two consonants stay together. BUT- if the two consonants in the middle are the same (bb, dd, ll, etc.) and are making one sound, then divide the word between the two consonants. Remember- we are learning these general rules to help us read unfamiliar words!!
Look at these words: upholster tendril These words have the VCCCV pattern. In a VCCCV word, the 2 consonants that stand for 1 sound or form a blend stay together when the word is divided. Knowing this rule can help you break longer words into syllables in order to read them. With your partner break the two above words into syllables- tell your partner which two letters make a blend and where to break the word into syllables. up/hol/ster ten/dril
