I created this packet of games so that my students could have fun learning about the 6 syllable types, which are Closed, V-C-e, r-Controlled, Vowel Teams, Open, and Final Stable. Once students can differentiate the 6 syllable types, they have more tools to put in their reading toolbox. These strategies help them to see words in a whole new way.
The basic principle of teaching syllable types is to for students to learn to identify vowel teams or consonants around the vowel in a word because then the sound of the vowel/vowels can be determine. This reading approach gives students 6 solid strategies that are rather consistent throughout the English language. Therefore with such consistent strategies, students can launch into reading and experience more confidence and less guessing when reading.
Implementing these strategies enable students to feel like they finally broke the reading code thus solving the mystery to reading. So in hopes of making this mystery fun, this packet offers a variety of games for students to choose to play. The following 15 games can be placed in language stations or be played during small groups. The packet contents are as follows and there are some game examples posted as well.

On this kind of graphic organizer, word cards can be drawn and words can be organized and sorted accordingly. There are six different organizers like this one included.
