When I am creating activities for my daughter I am always thinking ahead for new ways that said activity can be used. Not only am I trying to save money, but time as well. That is why these syllable counting printables are so helpful – there are so many ways they can be used! These printables are great for learning syllables and word parts with Kindergarten and 1st grade students, or anytime you want something to grab for a quick review.
How Many Syllables? A Syllable Counting Activity
When my daughter came home from school talking about syllables I was so excited. She’s only been in Kindergarten for 3 months and she’s already learning syllables? YES! It was so exciting for me but also for her!
One of the simple explanations of the purpose of syllables is to help kids break down words into ‘chunks’. This can help children sound out words and read faster as well as more accurately.
I am certain that when children can break down the words into syllables it helps them spell the words more quickly as well.
This free printable packet includes four different pages.
Each page contains six different blocks. Each block includes an image, the spelled out word and a space to answer how many syllables the word has.
Many kids can identify syllables before they can read the larger words. This is why I included a picture as well as the written word.
My favorite part of this activity is the variety of ways that it can be done.
With A Pencil: A writing utensil can be used to circle or color the number that corresponds with the number of syllables. If the pages are going to be laminated, a dry erase marker could be used.
Clip Cards: Cut each block out, laminate each block and use a clothespin to clip the correct number.
I created the printables in black and white to save some colored in. Plus, it could be fun for the children to also color in the pictures as they do the activity.
