This week we will be studying open and closed syllables.
An open syllable has a vowel at the end of the syllable (like "go").
A closed syllable has a vowel enclosed by consonants (like "got").
The vowel sound of an open syllable is usually a long vowel sound.
The vowel sound of a closed syllable is usually a short vowel sound.
