DESCRIPTION: A key issue for struggling readers in 3rd grade and above is reading multisyllabic words. Decoding is essential and impacts reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. In this interactive session, participants practice a four-step technique to show students how to recognize patterns, identify sounds, and apply syllable division rules. Students will be fully engaged pointing to vowels, and using hand gestures to demonstrate recognition of the syllable type. Participants will leave the workshop with everything needed to teach the closed syllable the next day.
