This product features two separate activities that can be used during the month of February as centers, small groups, or as an independent lesson for 1-2 days.
This product focuses on understanding syllables and how words are divided. It addresses the 3rd grade VA SOL:
The student will apply word-analysis skills when reading.
a) Use knowledge of regular and irregular vowel patterns.
b) Decode regular multisyllabic words.
Activity One: Students use the Valentine word cards and syllable card recording sheet to record the number of syllables for each word. You can choose if you want to allow them to use the answer key to check their answers or have students turn in their work.
Activity Two: Students use the game board, game pieces, dice, syllable question cards, and answer key to play with a partner or small group. Student directions are also provided for independent play.
