Why Lesson Planet?
Animal names are a great way to practice syllables with words your young scholars will be familiar with! Using images, students examine 7 animals and color in the number of paws that correspond with the number of syllables in that animal name. They tally the syllable count in another column. Remind students that they should use the full name of each animal, and not a nickname. Consider a game where each student gets an animal or number card and have to match themselves!
