Our Decoding Multisyllable Words lesson plan offers students further practice with reading and decoding multi-syllabic words. Various types of syllables are defined, such as open syllable and vowel-silent-e, and six steps are provided for sounding out long words. During this lesson, students are asked to cut apart provided words into syllables and then try to connect the syllables to make new words, making a list of the divided syllables and the new words they create. Students are also asked to match syllables with their syllable type, demonstrating their understanding of the different syllable types.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to decode multisyllabic words.

    Excellent content for older students (4th and up)

    I've used this lesson with 4-6th graders with great success. It was a little too advanced for my 3rd graders (I work with students with learning disabilities). The explanations are clear and the activities are well-thought out and support the objectives.

    Amazing resource

    I was doing some research about materials to include in a class so as to help some EL’s I found Clarendo and was amazed by the structure and quality of the materials.
