Counting and Segmenting Syllables

April 12, 2013

I've previously shared a lesson on counting syllables and segmenting words into syllables:

I've taken it a step further now and created a packet to go along with this lesson:

Students seem to catch onto counting syllables pretty easily. Once they get the hang of it, I use syllables to teach students how to break words into sounds/syllables and how to use them to help spell words.  It's a great activity/mini-lesson for struggling spellers.  I always have a few kiddos who are not confident in their ability to spell, and it really holds them back from trying.  This is a strategy they can use to become inventive spellers, and it really helps them to become more confident!

Here's a look at some of the activities included in the packet:

 In this activity, teachers/students cut words into syllables.  They then piece them together to sound out/spell a word:

 In this activity, students can spell words using syllables or use letter tiles to piece syllables together:

Another activity involves using a Syllable Box. 

I made my first "teaching how-to" video on how to use the box.  I filmed it myself, so bare with me! :-)
