I LOVE playing literacy games with my students...so this week we focused on learning all about syllables. It went really well with the letter we are learning to print, "D", since we talked about how syllables and drum beats are similar.
I am going to be putting out my Syllable Clapping game next week at my Word Work centre (which is housed in a bucket on my Literacy Shelf). The students have to each wear a pair of "clapping gloves" (gardening gloves), choose a card and clap how many syllables that word has. The answers are on the back - I like to write the number of syllables and the word as well.
