Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide | 1 page | Grades: K - 2

Practice blending, segmenting, and counting syllables in words with a Google Interactive activity.

Digital Syllable Activities for Early Readers

When learning to read, students are encouraged to decode words by looking at the sum of their parts—not only as whole words, but also as syllables

Syllable counting breaks words into more digestible “chunks” for early learners’ ears to hear, making it easier to sound out and spell words accurately and with greater fluency. 

In this interactive syllable activity, students will practice counting the number of syllables in words, breaking words into syllables, and blending syllables together to create new words.
