A great syllable counting activity with a Valentine's Day theme. Add it to your literacy unit for this February holiday. Students can stack all heart cards in a pile and take turns drawing a card. They then have to say the name of the picture on the card and count the number of syllables in the word. Then they place it under the Valentine's Day turtle with the number of the correct syllables. Example, a heart with a pumpkin- pumpkin has 2 syllable so the heart goes to the turtle with the number 2. You can write the answers on the back of the shamrock card so students can self check their work. Print this activity on card stock, laminate for durability, cut apart, and start counting syllables! Very quick and easy to use! Great activity for Kindergarten students at a center or as a game when work is finished. This comes with worksheet where students choose a card with a word, write the word, draw the word, and count the number of syllables in the word.
