MSLEMultisensory Structured Language Education Methods and Strategies for the classroom
Syllable Types • 1. Closed Syllable • 2. Open Syllable • 3. Vowel Team • 4. Vowel Consonant e • 5. Final, stable syllable • 6. R controlled syllable
Chart Verbiage • 1. Closed syllable- A vowel in a closed syllable is short, code it with a breve. • 2. Open syllable- A vowel in an open, unaccented syllable is long, code it with a macron. • Open unaccented syllable- a in an open, unaccented syllable says (u) code it with a tittle. i says (i) code it with a breve e, o, and u are half long, code them with a modified macron.
Verbiage continued • 3. Vowel team- underline digraphs and arc diphthongs • 4. Vowel consonant e- The vowel will be long, code it with a macron, the e will be silent, cross it out. • 5. Final, Stable Syllable- Bracket the final, stable syllable. Accent the syllable before it. • 6. R controlled syllable- Arc the vowel r combination.
Digraphs, Trigraphs, and Quadrigraphs • Digraphs (underline) th, sh, ch, ck, ay, oo, ng, au, ow, eu, ew, ei, oe, ee, ai, ie, oa, ou, aw, ea, ue, ph, ey • Trigraphs- dge, igh, tch • Quadrigraph- eigh
Combinations and Diphthongs • Combinations (arc) qu, wh, ar, ir, ur, er, or, • Diphthongs (arc) oi, oy, ou, ow
Final Stable Syllables • Cle • tion, sion • tial, tian, tient, tious • cial, cian, cient, cious • ture
Syllable Division Steps 1. Check for affixes and final stable syllables 2. Check for compound words 3. Check for “obvious coding” such as digraphs, combinations, or silent letters. 4. Draw a line from vowel to vowel. 5. Pattern 6. Divide 7. Accent 8. Code 9. Read
Spelling Base words with Dots • Procedures • Look and Listen • Echo • Unblend and make dots on paper • Touch the dots and spell • Name and Write • Code and Read
