This 27 page PDF file highlights numerous skill building activities to continue to support student understanding of the seven syllable types. There are many pictures (color) that are used in the game that are also helpful in oral language development. Students in kindergarten through higher grades benefit from the numerous activities included in this multisensory and prescriptive approach to the syllable types.
This entire packet is designed and developed using the Orton Gillingham approach to teaching. The Orton Gillingham Approach is based on a multisensory, explicit, cumulative approach - provides application and over-learning, along with continual review of previously presented skills.
Students love to play the game, and do not realize each time the game is played, learning is occurring! This activity can be played with a partner, or small group. Many teachers have shared their "students" love the game, and it is a great "go to" activity when there is a change in plans.
