These rocket mats and pictures are a fun way for children to practise identifying syllables.
In my class I use body beats to teach syllables. I began this activity by laying out the rocket syllable mats. Next I showed one picture card at a time and asked what it was. After that I asked my students to body beat the word to show how many syllables there were. Finally I asked a student to place the picture below the corresponding rocket.
Here is a video I found that illustrates a syllable game with the body beating technique I prefer to use.
