Join us for an up-close, hands-on overview of 95 Percent Group's Multisyllable Phonics Chip Kit. This resource supports educators in the explicit teaching of syllable types using multisensory techniques, unique manipulatives, and phoneme-grapheme mapping. Through the lens of a couple of syllable types, we'll share a routine that supports students in strategically approaching the reading and spelling of multisyllable words. The manipulatives help students see syllables as chunks so they can more fluently recognize them while reading unknown words. Rapid and automatic recognition of the syllable type is a powerful way to impact reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension skills.  During this session, we'll tap into phonology, focusing student attention on spoken syllables, and the phonemes within them. Phonemes serve as the anchors for print. Phonological deficits that persist beyond the early grade levels must be addressed. These instructional routines provide the necessary structured support to move students from phonology to orthography to reading and spelling multisyllable words. Teachers will leave with a sample lesson and manipulatives to use in the classroom.
