Level 1 is the first workbook to include multisyllabic words. In order to simplify these words, Sylladot uses hyphens and dots.
HYPHENS: Our hyphens simplify multisyllabic words by breaking them into syllables. Students can focus on just a few letters at a time instead of the whole word. These words no longer look scary. Over time, students will learn how to chunk words into syllables by learning and recognizing these patterns. This same concept can be seen with phone numbers.
DOTS: We add dots above the sounded vowels. Vowels can be tricky for students. Some vowels are long while others are short. Some are silent. Sometimes multiple vowels make one sound. Our dots help by pointing out the vowel sounds that you hear. Students no longer have to guess.
Syllables + Dots = Sylladot
