Reading and Spelling Multisyllabic Words

Description:
Do you have students who struggle with decoding multisyllabic words? Do they often look at the first letter and guess, even though they can read single-syllable words quite well? This Knowledge Block builds upon the Phonic Knowledge and 6-Step Lesson Plan sessions. We begin by briefly reviewing the 6 major syllable types in English and other key terminology. Participants will learn evidence-based instructional routines for teaching students to read and spell multisyllabic words.
