We've been working on breaking words into syllables and counting the syllables.
How do your kids count syllables in words?
We clap them and tap them (and some look like they're praying their answer is right, ha!)...
...and we count how many times our chin drops when we say the word.
To go along with our winter theme (and our crazy winter weather lately!), we made a new literacy center for counting syllables....All Aboard the Syllable Train!
Children will look at the words on each train car and place them behind the engine with the correct number of syllables to create a train for 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 syllable words.
Here is a student's center work in progress...
We're giving this new literacy center away FREE tonight to the first three followers to comment on this post. Be sure to also leave your email so we know where to send the file!

These cute animals and snowmen are bundled up for this crazy weather! We had a snow day last Friday and our temps are dropping down into single digits and below zero windchills tonight...Brrrrr!
Did you have a snow day or cold day off of school today?
