Students will say the name of the picture/read word on the card, segment the word by syllables and sort the picture onto a tree for that number of syllables. Each picture is on an apple with the word also labeling the picture. There are 9 pictures for 1, 2 and 3 syllable words and 7 pictures for 4 syllable words. There is also a recording sheet so students can write the words they sorted for each number of syllables.
Common Core Standard: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.2b Count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words.
