Syllable Word Activities for Kids
Being able to break apart words into syllables is foundational to phonological awareness and learning how to read! Here are a few syllable-building activities you can do with your students.
1. Syllable Scavenger Hunt
Put a collection of items in the middle the room (words with various amounts of syllables). To begin, call out a number and the student has to find an item that has that correct amount of syllables in its word.
2. Syllable Bean Bag Toss
To play the syllable bean bag toss, get your kids into pairs. To begin, instruct your students that you are going to call out a word and they are going to toss the bag to their partner on each syllable. At the end of the word they both need to shout out the correct number of syllables in the word given. (The first pair to shout out the correct answer wins that round.)
3. Syllable Picture Sort
On a chalkboard or with post-it-notes, make categories (numbers 1-5). Next give your students a stack of images and have them say each word out loud, clap the syllables, then place the image into the correct number category. For example if your student has a picture of a hippopotamus, they would put that image in the 5-syllable category.
