Some of my second graders had a hard time reading multisyllabic words and needed some way to tackle those larger words. By breaking a word into parts, they were better able to find chunks they could use to help them with those trickier words.
To make it more exciting, I created some simple puzzles and games to help them practice chunking sounds in words.
The students had some puzzle pieces to use and create words. They wrote those words on the sheet to match the pictures. This was simple and fun to do, and I was able to make several sets for different groups. Each student had a different color set of puzzles, so they wouldn't get them mixed up.
After several days of chunking sounds with the puzzles, the students used their chunking strategy to sort words by syllables.
We ended out the week with a fun game. Students had to read the words on the cards and decide how many syllables were in the word. They moved along the board the number of spaces. They really enjoyed the ninja theme of the game too!
One other added part in the pack is a set of puzzles with pictures that students have to complete. We didn't get a chance to use these, but they will be great for centers.
