We have been talking about breaking words into syllables in order to turtle talk longer words more accurately during writing activities. Here is a video we watched to help the children understand the concept of syllables. Ask your child my favourite way of doing syllables. It wasn’t shown in the video.
Here are some games you can play to help your child understand more about syllables. Be careful he/she doesn’t confuse breaking words into syllables with breaking words into individual sounds(Turtle Talking). If you happen to come across any other syllable games online or any apps for the Ipad let me know so I can add them here!

Syllable Game #2
A consonant blend is two or more consecutive consonants in a word whose sounds blend together. Although the sounds “blend” together, each sound is still heard. At school we have been learning to read blends during our shared reading activities and we will be working on an anchor chart to use as a resource during our writing. We have also been singing a song about blends and making words that begin with the blends from the song each day as well.
