Corn Kernel Syllable Sort includes a cover, 3 sort "mats," corn kernel cards, and a record sheet. The words on the corn kernel cards are either 1 syllable, 2 syllables, or 3 syllables.
Corn Kernel Syllable Sort can be used with the whole class, small group, or independently. A record sheet is included which helps to make this a great center activity. This is a great tool for remediation and differentiation.
You can use a few of the words to model how to clap the number of syllables and then demonstrate placement of the corn kernel on the appropriate corn on the cob. My students say a word and clap its parts. The number of claps determines the number of syllables.
If your students are not ready for multi-syllabic words you can just use the 1 syllable sort mat and the 1 syllable corn kernel cards. Throw in some of the 2 syllable corn kernel cards as distractors. Then add the 2 syllable corn kernel cards when they are ready. Do the same when they have reached the 3 syllable sort level.
