Syllable Counting Punch Cards
To reinforce the teaching of syllables, I made these Syllable Counting Punch Cards. You can make your own with sticker as described below or print the FREE Syllable Counting Punch Cards below.
- card stock
- hole punch
To make your own syllable counting cards, divide a piece of card stock into sections with a marker; I was able to do 3 across and 4 down.
With your stash of stickers, choose a sticker for each counting card.
I chose stickers of objects that were 1, 2, or 3 syllables. On each card I wrote the word on top, and below I drew in three circles.
Present the syllable counting cards with a hole punch.
My daughter’s task was to say the word aloud, count how many syllables were in that word, then punch that number of circles.
Your child can punch the syllable counting cards as they speak the word or say the word and then punch holes in the counting card.
For instance, my daughter and I said the word ‘Panda.’ As I said the word I tried to make the syllables easier for her to hear, so I put extra emphasis on the syllables ‘pan/da’. Since there are two syllables, my daughter then punched two circles with the hole punch.
