Has anyone heard of this? I know you dot the vowels, which is supposed to help you break up the words in order to pronounce it. I don't know how you use the dots to break up the word. If anyone could explain it to me (or tell me where to find information about it,) I would appreciate it!!! I have looked for books and websites that explain it, but I can't find anything. TIA

Hot Spot and Dot
Adapted from the work presented to me by Dr. Wendy Cheyney.
Use hot spot and dot to figure out words that are unfamiliar. In order to use this strategy, the child should know the difference between a long vowel (or say-its-own-name vowel) and a short vowel sound (or say-its-other-sound vowel).
Students divide mult-syllable words using the rules that follow.
Steps to figuring out multi-syllable words:
  • <LI class=handout>Spot the vowels. <LI class=handout>Dot the vowels. <LI class=handout>Connect the dots. <LI class=handout>Divide the word into parts. (Doesn't necessarily match syllable rules.)
  • Figure out the vowel sounds. (Remember, if the rules don't work, try another sound.)
2-Consonant Rule
If there are 2 consonants, divide between them:
but ter (Say the u's other sound - not it's name.) 1-Consonant Rule
If there is 1 consonant, divide after the vowel.
ta ken (Say the a's name.)
The Bossy /r/
If there is an /r/ after the vowel - keep the /r/ with the vowel and say the r-controlled vowel sound.
fur long (The u now has a new sound: /ur/)
The /le/ Rule
The le grabs the consonant with before it.
ta ble
Suffixes and Prefixes Rule
Suffixes and prefixes should be taken off immediately. Then work with the rest of the word.
