When children have gained a satisfactory knowledge of phonics, they should be introduced to the syllabification system for word attack. This shows them how to divide and break up unfamiliar words in order to recognise and spell them.
the exercises have been designed to continue to give children opportunity to develop their reading skills while expanding their vocabulary
this carefully planned approach, together with the methods used, should ensure that children are able, with confidence, to meet any new and difficult words
some of the word study aspects are compound words, long and short vowels, synonyms, antonyms, suffixes and prefixes
syllabification rules and answers have been provided
