Interested in helping your child excel in learning to spell, read, and pronounce words correctly? I am going to bet you said yes. Understanding syllables and learning to segment words will go a long way toward achieving this goal. It will also help them master phonics and develop greater fluency.
Most kids begin learning about syllables or segmenting words in kindergarten. It can be lots of fun for them. Clapping syllables is one method that kids seem to enjoy. I’ve also had kindergarten kids to second graders hold their hand under their chin so they can feel every time their mouth opens. Each time the mouth moves, they know that is a syllable.
I decided to list a few neat resources for teaching about syllables, playing online games about segmenting, and using hands-on activities with your class or child.
What tips and tricks do you use for teaching about syllables? Please leave a comment for everyone.
