Knowing how to break words into syllables helps students pronounce words, figure out unknown words, and assists with spelling.
Print and cut the picture cards. Players take turns drawing a card. Students will say the name of the picture on the card. Then ask how many syllables are in the word. Students can place a hand under their chin and say the word. The number of times a student’s chin hits their hand is how many syllables are in the word. Place a LEGO® brick on the stack for each syllable heard. The player with the highest tower is the winner.
