Spring Syllable Sort – hand-drawn pictures and words for students to sort according to each word’s number of syllables. A cute, simple, and versatile sort for students to practice counting syllables!
There are 5 words/pictures for students to sort into 1 syllable, 2 syllable, or 3 syllable groups. There are 15 words in total.
I have included 3 ways to use this sort:
1 / There is a color copy of the words/pictures organized according to their number of syllables. This is meant for teachers to cut and/or laminate for a class or small group set. This would be a hands-on activity with no cutting/coloring/pasting.
2 / There is another color copy of words/pictures that are not organized according to the number of syllables. With this second approach, in addition to practicing syllables through sorting, students can also practice cutting and pasting skills.
3 / There is also a black and white copy of the words/pictures. Again, the words are not organized by their number of syllables. With this third option, students can cut, sort, paste, and color.
This activity is a simple way to review syllables, as well as to review words while heading into spring time. (“Blossom” is a good stretch word!) Depending on the age and ability of your students, the sort could be used as a guided whole group or small group activity, or it could be used as a literacy station for more independent students. I’ve designed the different approaches so that the sort can be easily differentiated depending on the readiness level of your students.
I hope this works well for you and your students!
