### Decoding Longer Words

Structural Analysis

VCV Pattern

California Standards:
• R1.2 Decode multisyllabic words
• R 1.6 Use context to figure out new words
Objectives

Students will:

• divide words with a vowel-consonant-vowel pattern into syllables
VCV Pattern
• We can often figure out how to pronounce a word by looking at the pattern of vowels and consonants.
• Words with a VCV pattern usually divide before the consonant. This causes the first syllable to have a long vowel sound ( The vowel says its name.).
VCV

• When a syllable ends in a vowel, it usually has the long vowel sound
• Examples:

began paper maker

be/gan pa/per ma/ker

/

Think aloud:

moment

v-c-v

When I look at this word I see the VCV pattern o-m-e.

I’ll try dividing the word between the first vowel and the consonant and pronouncing the o with a long vowel sound.

The word might sound like /moh–ment/.

That sounds right. I know that a moment is a word that I have heard that means just a short bit of time.

v-c-vVCV Pattern
• Many VCV words divide after the consonant, so the first syllable has a short vowel sound.

Let’s look at a few more words:

visit

/

/

v-c-v

Try dividing the word after the vowel.

That would give the first i a long sound, like /eye/

which doesn’t sound like a word I know .

Next, try dividing it after the s.

That would give the first i a short sound.

That does sound like a word I know! / viz-it/

Let’s look at one more word:

before

/

v-c-v

Try dividing the word after the vowel.

That would give the first e a long sound

which sounds like a word I know.

Copy the underlined words.

• The cafeteria opens at eleven-thirty.
• I need a topic for my report.
• I spied a thin, white figure drifting into the room.
• My grandma’s vision isn’t very good.

Work with a partner to divide the words into syllables, decode the words, and give their meanings.

Take out your purple practice book. Turn to page 146
• Write the word from the box that belongs in each group.

(Notice that each word in the box follows the VCV pattern.)

• As you use each word, cross it off.
• Draw a line between the syllables as we did in the lesson we just completed.
• If you come to one that you don’t know, skip it and come back to it later.
