E8: Two-Syllable Words, Part 5
1. OverviewHear a two-syllable word and identify either the first or last syllable, using picture cards as visual clues. Now that your child has learned to identify a single syllable from a two-syllable word, we will mix up the words so that she might have to listen for either the first or last syllable. This will challenge her memory and listening skills.
“Say hamster, without -ster…”
- word list
- picture cards (includes word index) – these are the same cards that were used in Compound Words, Part 1, Part 3, and Part 5 and Two-Syllable Words, Part 1 and Part 3
Video: How to play Two-Syllable Words, Part 5Before each round of the game, find the appropriate picture card (the word list will tell you which one to use). Go through the images on the picture card and name them, to make sure you and your child are using the correct word for each picture (e.g., bird, not robin). Name the pictures from left to right and from top to bottom.
Adult: [showing picture card] Let’s look at these pictures. They show a wheel, wig, bee, and book. Now you name each picture as I point to it. Child: Wheel. Wig. Bee. Book. Adult: That’s right.Be sure to do this identification before introducing the word for your child to analyze. To start the game, you will say a two-syllable word from the provided word list, and have the child repeat it. Then ask her to say just the part of the word you ask for. Hold up the appropriate picture card to give her a visual clue.
Adult: I’m going to say a word, and you will tell me only one part of the word I say. The part I want you to say will be the same as one of these pictures. [Hold up appropriate picture card.] Here’s the word: hamster. Say hamster. Child: Hamster. Adult: Now say hamster, but don’t say -ster. Do you see the word that’s left in one of these pictures? Child: Ham. Adult: That’s right. [Hold up appropriate picture card.] Here’s another one: plastic. Say plastic. Child: Plastic. Adult: Now say plastic, but don’t say pla-. Plastic without pla-. Do you see the picture of the word that is left? Child: Stick! Adult: Good job.Go through the other words in the word list until your child stops paying attention. You can continue the activity at your next session. NOTE: Be careful not to add an extra “the” to your instructions, as in: “Say selfish without the sel-.” The extra word will just confuse your child. ↑ Top
