Also question is, can a word have both open and closed syllables?
An open syllable occurs when a vowel is at the end of the syllable, resulting in the long vowel sound, e.g. pa/per, e/ven, o/pen, go & we. Open syllable words are open because they are not closed by a consonant.
|Open Syllable (Long Vowel Sound)||Closed Syllable (Short Vowel Sound)|
Likewise, is she a closed syllable word? Although the word is unfamiliar, she isn't flustered because she has a method for determining whether the letter A says its long or short sound. She sees that the A is followed by a consonant, which means that it is in a closed syllable, so the vowel most likely says its short sound.
Also know, can a closed syllable have two vowels?
This is not a closed syllable because a consonant does not close in the vowel at the end. Is there just one vowel in this word? No. This is not a closed syllable because there are two vowels.
How do you teach two syllable words?
As I mentioned above, teach them to clap or tap out the syllables first. Focus on each syllable separately. Say the word more than once! After writing the first syllable, train your students to say the whole word again, clap it out again, then say the 2nd syllable and stretch it out to hear all the individual phonemes.
