School-Home Links: Breaking Words into Syllables
Involve the whole family in syllable division with this resource, which has parents helping their children practice a new skill. Learners look at 6 words, which are visually divided, and write down their syllable count. There are 2 examples. They are then challenged to think of two friends' names, figuring out how many syllables are in each. For this learning exercise, students are encouraged to clap when they hear a syllable. Child and parent sign the learning exercise when finished.
