Talking Tapping Syllables
This Talking Tapping Syllable card provides a practical resource for breaking words into syllables: a very important phonological skill. Children tap with one finger on each hand to identify how many syllables in a word.
Compound words are a great starting point as they break easily into two syllables – lunchbox, football, teaspoon, handbag, gumboots etc.
Children brainstorm fruit and tap out the number of syllables – apple (2) grapefruit (2) banana (3) watermelon (4) peach (1) grapes (1) Foundation Year Sequence
