Teach students about the six syllable types with this comprehensive interactive instructional slide deck.

Teaching the Six Syllable Types Has Never Been So Easy!

Are you about to embark on a journey into the wonderful world of syllable types with your students? Then do we have the resource for you!

This comprehensive instructional slide deck has been designed to teach your students about the six syllable types and how these can be helpful when breaking words into their syllables. It contains:

  • Teaching slides for each of the six syllable types
  • A ‘click and check’ interactive review activity for each syllable type
  • A ‘drag and drop’ interactive review activity for each syllable type

Tips for Extension and Scaffolding

If you have a mixture of above- and below-level learners, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

  • Provide students with a whisper phone to help them hear the sounds in each syllable/word as they complete the activity.

Challenge Fast Finishers

  • Have students create word banks of words for each syllable type. Display these in the classroom as a reminder of the phonemic characteristics of each syllable type.

🧑‍ Group Learning

  • Project the slides onto a screen and work through them as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks or mini whiteboards.
