I am always looking for interesting ways to practice how many syllables are in a word. I was "blog cruising" and I found the perfect solution on a great blog known as Just Another Day in First Grade. If you have not seen this blog please check it out and follow this talented teacher. I already have her in my Goggle reader.
So... I tweeked her idea for creating this book and made it a bit easier for my kinderkids. I can't wait to try it out. It is the perfect activity for keeping them busy while I am assessing them. Thank you so much Mrs. Tabb.
I want the kids to clap each word and decide how many parts it has.
Then they cut out the the correct number of balls and glue them under the word. I think they will love doing this! Let's play ball!
