I’ve created these closed syllable clip-it cards to practice reading and identifying words with three different types of closed syllables: cvc, ccvc, and cvcc.

NOTE: This is specifically designed for students who are already familiar with closed syllables. It is to be used for reinforcement.

Here are a few tips:

  • You’ll need a set of clothespins to use this activity.
  • Print the clip-it cards on cardstock and laminate them for longer lasting use.
  • Shuffle all the clip-it cards WELL before starting. They are not mixed up when you print them out.
  • Students will take 1 card at a time. Keep a collection of clothespins in a basket nearby.
  • They will read the word, and think about which closed syllable it is.
  • Once they make their choice, they will clip a clothespin on the correct section of the card.
  • Photocopy and have students use the generic closed syllable sheet on page 15 for a
    record of their answers.
  • An answer key is on page 16 for all 48 words.
