Crafty Mathy Mom Posted February 16, 2008 Share Posted February 16, 2008 Hi, I don't post much because of my extra slow dial-up connection, but I have a question. My dd 8 is having difficulty determining which syllable in a word receives the accent. Her reading is fine. She understand's what an accent mark does in a dictionary respelling. She just can't figure out which syllable to mark when she has exercises on accents in spelling. I don't have a good explanation beyond "Which part of the word sounds strongest?" Is this really a necessary skill? Do I have permission to let this go? She is a perfectionist, and it frustrates her that she doesn't understand this. Thanks for any help.
