  1. Wow, many great insights here. You don’t have to wait until all of the phonics patterns have been learned to teach multi-syllabic words. I like the syllable word strategy. The power of syllables when spelling is yet another important area to dive into.

    1. Reading multisyllable words can be so empowering for students! It is neat to see them get excited about breaking down “big words.” Glad you enjoyed the resource!
