Reflection: Complex Tasks Break It - Use Syllables in Writing - Section 4: Teacher's Turn


My focus for this lesson is how to break up words when the kids are writing. There are many reasons to break up words (syllables, prefixes, suffixes, root words....), but I don't want to overwhelm them. I'd rather focus on this 'syllable rule' early on, but I did mention the words 'suffix' and prefix in our discussion.  Some of my kids pick up on the vocabulary and can infer some basic rules based on the examples but the word is just exposure for other kids for a later lesson.
