Here is a useful instructional tool presented at the August continuing education class for tutors entitled Divide to Conquer. This kinesthetic instructional game can help your learner understand common syllable types and how they are usually spelled and pronounced. Thanks to Project Read tutor, and former literacy program director, Lucille Cuttler for helping to present the workshop and for creating this learning tool.
The first grid contains examples of six syllable types. The second is blank so that you and your learner can plug-in syllables from words being studied in your tutoring sessions. Much more information on syllable types is available in your tutor training materials: LITSTART--pages 160 - 167, Tutor Training Manual -- pages. 50 & 51.
