Welcome back everyone! This is part four in my six part syllable series. I am having so much fun sharing this information about syllables with you!
A few quick reminders:
- If you are new to this series: Please read part one and click here. Read part two and click here. Read part three.
- In order to follow along with this series, please download a chart I created on the six syllable types by clicking here. It spells out CLOVER. Each letter in CLOVER stands for a syllable type, but is NOT taught in that order.
- I am blogging in the order the syllable types should be taught, so just follow along and you’ll see how I do it.
- Have you grabbed your copy of CLOVER yet? Great! Let’s dig into part four!
