Terry's Tips

Breaking words down into syllables helps children realize that words are made up of smaller parts. Read the two syllable words on this page and count the syllables with children by clapping hands. 

Extension Activity: As you read other stories to children, find one or two syllable words. Help children clap or tap as they count the number of syllables in the words.
