I really enjoy making board games and combining that with learning makes it even better! I created this game call One, Two, Three Syllables. The purpose of this game is to help kids identify how many syllables are in words, (i.e. cat= 1 syllable, zebra 2=syllables, lemonade= 3 syllables). There are many ways to show how to figure out the syllables, but my favorite is clapping. Clap while saying the word, how many times did you clap, that is the number of syllables in the word.
Here is how to create the game, all the supplies that you will need will most likely be around your house.
This is simple to make. If you would rather print out a game board and glue the game pieces to the premade board that is fine too. I personally like to make my own game boards.
That is it on how to make the board. Here is the fun part, how to play the game. For game pieces you can choose anything you want. You can use different colored counters or buttons or even player pieces from different games. You will also need a die, you can make your own or if you have one laying around you can use that.
How to play:
It is that simple, for me the point is to learn so I didn’t include board squares that say lose a turn, roll again, etc. It is just about saying the words and figuring out the syllables.
This game is perfect for K-2 graders. It is all about having fun and you might just learn something too!
What syllable games do you play with your kids or students? Let me know in the comments!
My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
