Syllables Overview Video

Here is a quick whistle stop lesson for parents who aren’t confident identifying syllables in words. Stay with it… the examples make it clear, and you do much of it naturally.

Syllables overview for parents

Say a word – get your child to physically clap or jump the syllables; Put their hand under their chin and feel how many times their chin ‘bobs’ to count the syllables.

Or, try saying a word in its syllable parts – like a robot – can your child hear the word?

Start with their name…

mum-my -= mummy

Win-ter = Winter

tea-cher = teacher

sun-set = sunset

ra-di-o = radio

el-e-phant

croc -o-dile = crocodile

ap-ple = apple

but-ter-fly = butterfly

car-pet = carpet

gar-den

hot = hot

cold = cold
