This exercise is meant for kids who are at the beginning stages of reading. They can recognize the individual sounds but often they are not able to pair up the sounds with the corresponding syllable. More practice in this type of exercise is beneficial mainly to English speaking kids in dual programs. Separating the consonants in the corresponding syllables can be challenging for kids who are still uncertain of the pronunciation of the words. Recognizing the syllable patterns in the Spanish language will help them become more confident readers.
