Have you ever thought about playing an "I Spy Game" at the supermarket or department store.? Well how about trying this one. Many students in the primary grades learn that each syllable in a word has to have a vowel sound. For those who have trouble hearing the vowel sound figuring out the number of syllables in a word can be difficult . When you go to the supermarket say "I spy a three syllable word and it's something red that you eat. (tomato) Think of all the places you go where you could play this game!. This was a twist on the usual "I Spy" games and looked like a fun activity to make for teachers of 1st and 2nd graders. Then I thought what a great way for parents to help their children at home!! Before playing the game, review what syllables are and practice clapping out some words to make sure they understand. This is a freebie which you can download by clicking on the image below that uses Fall words with "I Spy a Word".
