Decoding Multisyllabic Words Activities – Words with 2 and 3 Syllables



Let’s get real. Decoding multisyllabic words can be boring. But what if there’s a way to make it fun and for students to be successful at the same time?

That’s why I created this resource that includes a tried and true strategy with activities and games for kids to practice.

And it takes little time to prep. It includes a list of more than 100 2 and 3 syllable words so you don’t have to spend time looking for words for your kids to practice the strategy with.

Did I mention the activities and games? Because your kids will enjoy them so much, they’ll ask to do them repeatedly.

This resource works well with whole groups, small groups, or when working with individual students. The text is reader-friendly for neurodivergent students.

Three of the activities and games are both printable and in a Google Slides format.
