Unit 8 - Syllables: vowel and consonant patterns

think back to spelling teaching SYLLABLES are the number of BEATS in a word.

To work out how many syllables in a particular word, try singing it and see how many notes you need.

For example:

Hap-py Birth-day to you

'Happy' has two syllables, 'Hap - py', so needs two notes;

'Birthday' has two syllables, 'Birth - day', so needs two notes;

'to' and 'you' each have only one syllable.

Now try these. Say each word aloud then type in the number of syllables:


Count the syllables


Type in the number

ferry
train
ambulance
tank
helicopter
truck
liner
submarine
