Syllable Game

This is a fun game from The Florida Center for Reading Research

Students play a game by counting syllables in words.

1. Place game board and stack of word cards face up on a flat surface. Students place game

pieces at START on the game board.

2. Taking turns, students pick up a word card, say the word, count the syllables, and check the back of card.

3. If correct, move game piece the same number of spaces on game board as the number of

syllables in the word. If incorrect, leave game piece where it is and next student takes a

turn. Word cards can be placed at the bottom of the pile to be used again.

4. Game continues until all students reach the END.
