How to Teach Closed and Open Syllables Closed and open syllables are the first two syllable types students should learn. Out of the six syllable types, these two are the easiest for students to master. Hundreds of common words can be spelled using these two syllable types, so our students can get a lot of practice even while their spelling skills are still in the early development stage. To determine whether a syllable is closed or open, look at the vowel. Closed Syllables Phonics games Phonics games will help your child to practise sounding out words, which will help them to read. Initially, children will learn basic letter sounds, such as "c-a-t" for "cat". Later they will move on to sounds such as "th", "sh" and "ch", then "oo", "oa" and so on.

With more and more schools going paperless or migrating to the "cloud" (storing files on the Internet), student work has become more easily shareable, accessible by many, and more easily organized. Many teachers have turned to digital portfolios -- or "e-portfolios" -- for their students.

So, are you one of those long-time Windows users who lived through the Vista fiasco and then upgraded to Windows 7 as soon as it was apparent that it was far superior to the previous version?

Over the last several years, I've received email from lots of Windows 7 users who echo the above sentiments.
