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 are in a word, we can clap each beat:

Hap-pyBirth-daytoyou

Hap - py, has two beats so we would clap two times,

Birth - day also has two beats,

to and you only have one beat/syllable.

Try these words, counting the correct number of syllables:

Count the syllables.

Type the number:

ferry
train
ambulance
tank
helicopter
truck
liner
submarine

The Spellzone interactive course is intended to be used online and may not be printed.

One of the students has put in a huge amount of effort in completing Spellzone at least 3 times a week since his arrival with us in January.
