    Have this for one of my tutoring students and he LOVES it. Wish I could get my hands on some more prompts though, as the ones in this pack are tried and tired. 🙂

    Hi Katie
    So glad to hear your student is having fun with the syllable game. 🙂

    We’ve recently introduced a way for all of our members to request new resources! Each Thursday we select a resource from the list of member-submitted requests. The request with the most votes is guaranteed to be completed by the following Thursday.

    We’d love it if you could post your request for more syllable prompts to the request a resource page – that way it won’t be overlooked.


    Just let me know if you have any further questions about requesting resources, I’m more than happy to help.

    Kind regards
    – Shanelle
