Since Christmas is right around the corner, I have a free Christmas Clap-the-Syllables printable for you! This activity is a fun way to reinforce phonological awareness and help children to understand that words are broken down into component sounds. When children can identify that words have separate sounds, spelling becomes an easier task.
These printables are designed to be laminated, cut out, hole punched and placed on a ring. You can either use a dry erase marker or a vis-a-vis. Children can practice tracing the word and circling the number of syllables in each word. More advanced students can use slashes to identify where the syllables are broken apart. For example: the word present has 2 syllables and can be broken down as pre/sent. This download meets Common Core Standards for both Kindergarten and 1st Grade in the category of Phonological Awareness.
If you download our free printables, we would be so grateful if you added our shop as one of your favorites on Teachers Notebook:)
