Clap the Syllables
Hold up a card. Ask the children to identify the image, then clap the syllables.
Sort the Syllables
Give a selection of cards to children working individually, with a partner or in a small groups and have them sort the cards according to the number of syllables in the word illustrated. If there discussion about the number of syllables in the word; for example chick or chicken, cupcake or cake, then children should reach an agreement on the word before counting the syllables
