We are working on counting syllables in words. This is such a hard concept for some of my kids. I think some kids just can't say the words right or know what a beat is or something. I've tried everything. Anyhow, here are some activities we've done. To introduce syllables we said a little rhyme and sorted pictures of food into bags of 1, 2, or 3 syllables. This was given to me by one of the teachers on my team.
I think it's important for the kids to see the word along with the picture so I made these other activities. We did the syllable punch.
I made two versions of it, one for a center activity and the other if you don't want to mess with hole punches you can color instead.
Then we did the sort in our sort books. If you don't do sort books you could just glue them on a paper.
