Syllable Race Game with BOOM Cards


Words are made up of smaller parts – syllables and being able to hear that and be able to correctly count the number of syllables a word has is one of the earliest phonological awareness skills young children need to master.

Use this syllable game to allow children to practice identifying and counting syllables while playing a fun interactive game they can play in class in small groups and at home with family as homework.

To play, simply use the printable playing cards or our time saving digital BOOM cards to choose a word. Count how many syllables the word has and then move your counter the same number of spaces!

The digital cards can be previewed HERE!

Both the printable or digital cards can also be used on their own as a literacy center activity too.
