Before we dive into the word of R-controlled syllables, let’s quickly revisit some basic information on syllables.Before we dive into the word of R-controlled syllables, let’s quickly revisit some basic information on syllables.
A syllable is one complete sound within spoken or written words. It always has at least one vowel and may include consonants. Syllables play an important role in providing the rhythm and structure of words in spoken language, contributing to the overall flow and pronunciation of words.
It’s important to understand the difference between phonemes and syllables and phonemes.
This difference is critical in understanding the structure of words and how they are pronounced, as syllables contribute to word rhythm, and phonemes define the distinct sounds that make up syllables in words.
Syllable instruction is important for several reasons:
There are six different types of syllables. Please see our post about syllable types for more information about syllables.We have also been working through each syllable type. This post focuses on R-controlled syllables, sometimes called “Bossy R Syllables.”
R-controlled syllables are very distinct. They consist of a vowel followed by the letter’ r,’ and this ‘r’ significantly impacts how the vowel sounds.
What’s interesting is that these R-controlled vowels can be found at the start (artistic), middle (cart), or end of a word (far).
Vowel-R syllables may resemble closed syllables, but they differ significantly in the way they work. Compare the words Cat and Car.
Whenever you encounter a vowel followed by ‘r’ in a word, it’s considered an r-controlled syllable.
Teaching Vowel-R syllables can be tricky for kids because the ‘r’ changes how the vowels sound. It’s best to start teaching this in the first grade after students have learned about closed and open syllables, silent ‘e,’ and vowel teams.
This early introduction provides a solid foundation. However, it’s important to remember that mastering vowel-R syllables can be challenging for young learners. Continuous review and practice are vital during the first-grade introduction. Revisiting and reinforcing this concept is important as students progress into the second grade.
