There are seven syllable types. Learning the different syllable types helps makes sense of the different vowel sounds in the English language. We’ve learned about: Silent e, Bossy R, Diphthongs, Vowel Teams, and Open & Closed Syllables. The last syllable type to learn about is Consonant -le.
Consonant -le is an unaccented final syllable that contains a consonant and -le. The e at the end is silent, and creates a new sound: “ul”
The middle consonant doubles when it comes right after a short vowel. Try a rabbit or turtle online word sort.
