Research shows that incorporating phonological awareness activities into traditional speech intervention can improve phoneme awareness, articulation, and reading (Gillon, 2000).
Can students blend the words together to make a 3-4 syllable word?
This activity is perfect for targeting multi-syllabic words during the fall and Halloween season.
Cut along the dotted line. Give the bottom sheet to the student. Say each part of the multi-syllabic word and ask students to blend the words together to make a word that describes something in the Halloween scene. Ask them to say the word aloud and color the appropriate picture.
Use candy corn to help students visualize the segmentation of each syllable. Push the candy corn together to represent the blending of each word.
