Syllable Division Between Consonants
Just as learning syllable types is an ongoing process that continues and builds over time, so too is learning about syllable division. Learning to divide multisyllabic words opens many doors for students and expands the number of words that they can successfully decode. Your Orton-Gillingham students may feel overwhelmed and panic when presented with a long unknown word. Teaching syllable division gives your students the tools to take any multisyllabic word and break it down into bite size single syllable pieces.
