Syllable Count Cards
Recognizing the number of syllables in a word helps with decoding words and building fluency! This Syllable Count Cards activity includes 32 count cards, each with a hand-drawn illustration!
To prepare, print and cut out the cards. Laminate them for future use, if you’d like.
First mix up the cards. Have your child choose a card and say the name of the picture. Have them place a token or even a piece of candy, like a jelly bean, in the little squares for each syllable the word has. For example, “apple” has 2 syllables, so they would place one marker each in two squares.
