Reply To: Dyslexia & Structured Literacy
This chapter taught me that students who suffer from dyslexia do not hear all the syllables in a word.
I also learned the correct definition of what sight words are. They are words that you do not have to decode. I always thought sight words were words that did not follow the rules and so you had to memorize their spelling.
I am already teaching the 6 syllable types in the proper order: closed, open, magic e, controlled r, vowel teams, and lastly consonant-le. I love the idea, shown in the Mr, Lucas video, of the sorting game. I will incorporate this game. While teaching a new syllable rule I can reinforce the previous lessons by asking the students to place words under the correct syllable rule category.
