Yee-haw!! Get students up and moving with this "active"-ity that helps them learn about syllables! The basic idea of this game is to sort the word cards under the correct number header cards based on the syllables in the word. It is very versatile, and can be differentiated by removing or adding syllable sets as you teach them.
Syllable Round-Up can be played many ways:
-Whole group by copying 2 sets of the cards (or dividing them in
half for a shorter game play) and having 2 teams race to see who
can get the most correct in the shortest amount of time.
-Small group as a center where students sort the cards either
individually or in partners.
-Hang the word cards around the room and have students record
the number of syllables on a recording sheet of your choice.
There are 4 header cards (for one, two, three, and four syllables), and 72 word cards with adorable Western-themed clip art.
