Space Syllables


These FREE counting syllables activities are great for developing phonological awareness. They’re great for a space themed unit in Preschool, PreK and Kindergarten too!

Space Counting Syllables Activities

In my class I use body taps to teach syllables. I began this activity by laying out the rockets. 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.

You can grab your free space syllable mats and picture cards by clicking on the download button at the bottom of this page.

If you are doing a space theme in your class, you may also be interested in my space math centers.
