Effective and easy to use, this set makes it simple for students to decode 2, 3, and 4 syllable words. Beginning and struggling readers often want to make 3-syllable words into 2-syllable words and 4-syllable words into 2 or 3-syllable words. These pages help students recognize common clusters in longer words, pronouncing most syllables as previously learned clusters.
Beginning or struggling readers should not have to learn complicated rules for syllabication. We use familiar common English clusters to encourage our form of “syllabication.” After completing Vowel Tutor 3, and EVPS 3 (if desired) students become familiar with most common clusters in English.
Some students who have previously been exposed to a “word family approach” to decoding should be able to jump right into this style (EVPS 4) of “no rules” syllabication + sentence completion.
