Do you know what is a final stable syllable? A final stable syllable contains a constonant plus the letter l and a silent e, and always comes at the end of a word like bubble. Use these free worksheets to get some practice with this phonics concept!
Curious about what a final stable syllable is? Well, this post will teach you what it is and provide a final stable syllable worksheet for your grade 1 students. I love when we move on to new lessons with my little girl. Exploring a new concept and seeing her work hard to learn is fun. The past few weeks we have worked hard on the final stable syllable. What is it? I’m glad you asked.
A final stable syllable always comes at the end of a word. This syllable will contain a consonant, the letter “L”, and a silent e. You may see this syllable referred to as the C + le syllable.
Bubble is an example of a final stable syllable or a C + le syllable because you have the consonant b and then the letter le.
It seems very simple, but there is one concept that we have worked hard on. When to double the consonant.
Knowing when to double the constant in the final stable syllable goes back to our closed-door syllable. When a vowel is “closed” in by a consonant, then it makes a short sound. In the final stable syllable, we always put the consonant with the le. Now we have to look at what is left, and determine if we need to double the letter.
Let’s look at some examples.
juggle – we divide the word so that the “gle” makes the last syllable. Then I listen to the vowel sound in the first syllable. The “u” makes the short sound. If I don’t double the g, then I have ju/gle. The first syllable ends with a “u” and according to the open door rule, the “u” will make the long vowel sound. Not the word I want. So we double the g, and now the “u” will make the short vowel sound.
bugle – on the other hand, the word bugle would be divided up between the “u” and the “g”. The “u” makes the long “u” sound, and therefore I want the “u” to end that first syllable. I don’t need to double the g, because that would close in my “u” and it would make the short vowel sound.
I also don’t need to double letters, when the vowel sound is already closed in. In can/dle, the “n” closes in the “a”, so the “d” does not need to be doubled. Also, if we are looking at vowel teams or r-controlled vowels, the consonant will not need to be doubled either.
Bee/tle – The “ee” is a vowel team that makes the long “e” sound, so I do not need to double the t.
pur/ple = The “ur” is a r-contolled vowel, so I do not need to double the p.
This worksheet focuses on spelling C + le words.
This final stable consonant worksheet is a quick way to review syllable types and work on when to double the constant in a C + le word.
