Segmenting syllables

In this 3rd quarter we began segmenting words into syllables, or word parts. When we segment a word we are listening for how many word parts it has. To figure out how many syllables a word has we clap words out, we put our fingers beneath our chins to see how many times our chin drops down, and we also use our robot voices.

To practice segmenting, we brought in our favorite stuffed animals and segmented their names. For example, bear is 1 syllable.

We also brought in our favorite toy to practice segmenting words. Several boys brought in Transformers. We clapped it out and found out it has 3 word parts: trans-for-mer!
