The Multi-syllable Myths downloadable eBook provides practice with phonics and syllabication patterns which students have already learned. The nine Multi-syllable Myths tell the most famous Greek myths (Daedelus and Icarus, Pandora’s Box, the Trojan Horse, etc.) in decodable text. Students practice reading the myths with the vc/cv pattern containing various syllable types before moving onto the myths that incorporate all syllable division rules.
Through the use of these engaging stories that are part of our cultural heritage, struggling readers practice all elements of fluency – reading with accuracy, reading at an appropriate rate, and reading with proper expression.
