Identify the picture 

Determine the number of syllables (claps)

Draw an X on the clapping hands icon for each syllable in the word.  


This versatile product can be used as an independent activity, in small groups, or with the whole class. Just have the kids identify the picture, determine the number of syllables, and draw an X on the clapping hands icon for each syllable. 

You can also bind the pages into a phonemic awareness practice workbook. Either way, your students are sure to love this fun and motivating way to learn!

Here's what you'll get:

  • 35 syllable counting pages 

These rhyming word games can be used simply as matching games for centers or the cards can be placed face down and they can be used as concentration games. 

The concentration games will require students to focus in order to match the appropriate word pairs. I have included two sets of cards. The first set includes pictures with words that rhyme. The second set of cards has only pictures. These can be used for an advanced level of game play or for a student who is struggling to find the rhyming words.

      I have been looking for different activities to target phonological awareness skills. This is a great resource to target syllable awareness. I love the idea of using these as task strips. Students can X off, put on a bingo chip-or other small item, or smash playdoh over their target to make it more engaging.
