1st and 2nd graders sort words
by the number of syllables
in them. Sorting into categories is an excellent activity for children because it helps their brains
develop! But sorting by syllables also has other advantages.
Counting syllables is one of the first phonological awareness
activities students engage in on the road to literacy. By sorting words by number of syllables, youngsters develop syllable and word awareness, practice one-to-one correspondence, and get ready for more challenging activities such as blending and segmenting phonemes.
To complete this worksheet activity, children sort either 1/2 syllable, or 1/2/3 syllable Fall and Halloween words. There are two lists of words for each sort, grouped according to frequency and reading level.
The kit includes
→Two worksheets for writing the words, plus blank worksheets
→Two pages of 1- and 2-syllable words (grouped by reading level)
→Two pages of 1-, 2-, and 3-syllable words (grouped by reading level)
→A 1- to 2-syllable poster; and a 1- to 3-syllable poster with examples
You can use it in the classroom
✓a literacy station activity
✓a large or small group activity
✓an activity for early finishers
✓a homework assignment
✓a follow-up activity after a lesson in clapping syllables
✓use the blank cards to fill in student names
