Celebrate fall one sound at a time.
Introduce or review the concept of syllable sounds with children as they learn to say and spell the names of various favorite fall themed things. Syllable Symphony has a neat twist to it in that it is played like bingo but uses a specific number of musical note graphics to represent the syllable sounds in a particular word. It is simple to make and play.
This fall themed game can even be useful for non-readers as the parent could read the words, and the child would only need to count the syllable sounds using clapping, if necessary. It is fast to complete, and several rounds could be played within 15 minutes. The words used feature words that are one to five syllables. With golden orange playing boards, one can't help get into the seasonal change with the smile.
The Syllable Symphony of Fall game is suitable for eight players and is a six-page download, including the boards, calling cards, instructions and word key. You supply the markers, including coins, buttons, beans or even macaroni.
