Closed Syllables

In its simplest form, a closed syllable is a vowel followed by a consonant at the end. Examples include cap, sit, and up. It's called a closed syllable because the vowel is “closed in” by a consonant. ... And many multisyllable words contain closed syllables, as in insect, rabbit, and napkin. A closed syllable is a syllable with a short vowel sound and one or more consonants at the end. Watch this video for an explanation. Go to Thrive Literacy Corner for more information.
