I have crafted a free kindergarten and first-grade phonological awareness resource for counting one, two, and three syllables. The main component of this school themed resource is a deck of 20 digital task cards hosted on the Boom Learning platform.
Syllable Counting at School, available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, also includes an optional recording sheet which can be used with the digital task cards, two Cup Craze mats, in color and black/ gray/ white, along with a recording sheet in two formats, mark the number and write the number. I added numbered circles, which can be printed and cut, to use if you prefer instead of cups.
You will need to provide a set of cups, plastic or paper with a two to three-ounce capacity, with a round bottom that can be written on for each participant. Turn the cups bottom up and use a super permanent marker to write the numbers 1, 2, and 3 three times each. One cup will be leftover.
Give each student a mat and a set of cups. They simply name the picture, count the syllables, and match a numbered cup (or circle) to the picture. They can mark or record their numbers on an optional recording sheet, on plain paper, or on a whiteboard.
Be sure to give Boom Cards digital task cards a whirl in your classroom! Mrs. Renz’ Class has a wonderful tutorial to get you started.
I’d love to hear how you balance digital learning with hands-on and paper/ pencil instruction in your classroom.
