Segment and count up to 4 syllables with this game board and set of 33 picture cards.
Counting Syllables in Words
To play, students will choose a picture card to count the syllables. Then they’ll refer to the game board and move to the next space with that number.
Scaffolding + Extension Tips
Challenge students who already understand the concept to keep a written list of words that have the same number of syllables.
Support students who need help understanding the concepts by showing them how to clap as they count the number of syllables.
More Syllable Activities
Use this resource as independent practice for fast finishers, and for full-class learning opportunities like scoot activities, lesson reviews, formative assessments, and more.
🛴 Scoot Activity
Place each of the 33 picture cards around the room. Ask students to stand up with a blank sheet of paper numbered 1-33 to use as a recording sheet. Assign one card to each student (or pair) to start, having them rotate through each of the cards to write on their recording sheet how many syllables each word on the picture cards contains.
(NOTE: We suggest printing a second set of cards for this activity that you can number.)
🖍️ Draw it out
Show students a picture card from this resource. Then, challenge students to think of a different word that has the same number of syllables as the picture card and ask them to draw a picture of their word.
🧮 Syllable Sort
Have students sort the cards into piles of 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-syllable words.
