Letters & sounds - 2 syllable words

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by rach_1976, Feb 3, 2008.

  1. does anyone have a list of these?

    the only 2 examples in the book - we haven't done those sounds yet. We are on phase 3 - wk4

    And when they say 2 syllable words, I take it they actually mean 1 word that is made up of 2 smaller words... as suggested by their 2 examples.

    Can anyone help?

    Day is a one syllable word. One beat, if you like. Sunday is a two syllable word.

    spider
    coffee
    lazy
    acorn
    rotten
    painter
    wretched


    are all two syllable words.


    Habitat
    potato
    wonderful
    absolute
    willingly
    apricot

    are all three syllable words.


    Magnificent is a five syllable word.


    Antidisestablishmentarianism is a twelve syllable word. It has nothing to do with two words in one.


    Hope this helps.

    What are the examples, by the way?
     
  5. rach, is talking about compound words:
    sunset, backpack, binbag etc.
     
  6. thanks for your replies....

    I did mean compound words but it was late and couldn't think what they were called! BUT in L&S it calls them 2 syllable words! So do they want us to do compound or 2 syllable words?

    The examples in L&S sounds for 2 syllable words are carpark and farmyard! (on p.94)
     
  7. was just looking at teaching 2 syllable words this week as part of Letters and sounds and when i looked at their examples farmyard and carpark I suddenly thought these arent 2 syllable at all but compound words!!!! Then I remembered this post. Rach_1976 what did you do - teach 2 syllable or compound words?

    Is this a mistake in L + S? Am I missing something? What are we supposed to teach? Any advice would be appreciated!

    they can still be compound and 2 syllable words, ya know...
     
  9. working on a friday night with a bottle of wine is never a good idea!
    he he..... compound and 2-syllable, does that mean I have to think of words that match this double criteria :)
     
  10. Don't be afraid of using two syllable words including compound words.

    Far too much is made about 'which' words you should be using.

    The rule of thumb is really 'cumulative' words and you shouldn't (in my opinion) restrict yourselves to lenth of words according to the Letters and Sounds 'phases'.

    Remember that the programmes Jolly Phonics, Read Write Inc, Fast Phonics First and Phonics International have no such worry about multi-syllable or longer words.

    What the children cannot do independently, the teacher can 'model' - and in any event your better blenders will surprise you with what they can read given the opportunity.

    And the sooner children can word attack longer words, the sooner they can tackle a range of reading material.

    I'll give you a link to a long list of compound words off www.syntheticphonics.com . I compiled this list to stick on the Jolly Phonics 'compound birds' which are in Grammar One. I enlarged the birds many times and then laminated them and stuck magnetic sticky tape on the back.

    Link to follow if I can find it.
     
  11. Below is the list of all L&S words from the first 2-syllable word onwards.
    Copy and save, take what u need and delete what u don't. U can find more on the Learning to Read page at www.englishspellingproblems.co.uk

  12. The words are in L&S order of teaching.
     
  13. Thank you debbiehep for your reply. I always follow your posts with great interest!

    thank you to Maryte also. I now have plenty of examples of words to use :)

    Am quietly confident that as you say Debbie my better blenders will have no problem with some longer words. We will see anyway....
