Last year the state standards included phonics in our 5th grade ELAR objectives. I was thrilled because so many students still need help with decoding especially the ESL students. My 5th-grade students were having a little bit of difficulty recognizing VCV syllable words.

Here’s how I taught them to recognize VCV syllable words

  • Always identify the vowels first
  • Place a V under the vowels
  • Draw a line or bridge connecting the vowels
  • Identify the consonant(s) and put it between the vowels
  • Recognize the VCV syllable words
