We started our syllable study by making a chart of the students names, clapping the syllables, and placing dots to represent the claps.  You can see a sample of all the names we clapped and recorded.

We then played 

Feed the Animals!

You can see the pictures of the students clapping and sorting the food.

You can find the game in my store!  Click here for a link.

The students will then work on cutting and pasting skills to practice sorting by syllables.
I have 3 sheets to practice 1-3 syllable sorts and 3 sheets to practice 2-4 syllable sorts.  The activity can then be differentiated for the students.

 We read Shiver Me Letters A Pirate ABC by June Sobel.
This is such a fun book!  The students love to say "R"
One of the students made a connections and said, "That sounds like shiver me timbers!" exclamation in the form of a mock oath usually attributed to the speech of pirates in works of fiction.  It is employed as a literary devise to express surprise, shock, and even annoyance by authors.

WOW!!!  Kinders are so smart!!!! I'm sure we will be hearing that all year long!


We finally used the light up box!

After the discussion and retelling, We searched for letters in the sand and placed them on the light up box that contained a sheet projector with the alphabet.  Yes!!! There was mess to clean up!  Using sand is so much fun in kindergarten!
