I always have a few little ones on my caseload working on multisyllabic words or decreasing syllable reduction. I’ve always struggled with getting enough repetitions out of my preschoolers in particular since drilling is usually not in the cards (literally, as in flashcards aren’t going to cut it with these busy bodies, ha!) Also, many of the picture sets I have seen out there have word targets that are not appropriate for preschoolers. I also rarely have a group of preschoolers that is working on articulation exclusively so I need activities that can target articulation goals as well. With those two things in mind I decided to create a packet of lots of hands on activities, targeting multisyllabic words that are appropriate for preschoolers, and with language activities integrated into them.
My Multisyllabic Words Articulation and Language Combo Pack I think fits the bill! It targets 10 three syllable animals (elephant, bumblebee, dinosaur…), 10 three syllable common items (banana, hamburger, camera…), and 4 four syllable items (watermelon, caterpillar…) in a variety of activities.
What Do You See? Animals! Book – repetitive line book targeting 10 three syllable animals, made in the format of “Brown Bear, Brown Bear”
Multisyllabic Word Pacing Cards – Pacing cards for three and four syllable words, use the dots for kinesthetic and visual cueing, fold the dots under when the child doesn’t need the cueing any longer.
Multisyllabic Word Bingo – Bingo game boards targeting three and four syllable words
Multisyllabic Word WH Questions – questions targeting three and four syllable words, can be used in conjunction with the bingo game
Three Syllable Animals File Folder Game – file folder style matching game target three syllable animals, match the animals to the blank spots on the board.
Big and Little Three Syllable Word Cards – big and little picture cards for targeting three syllable words in phrases, qualitative concepts, and word combinations.
Here are some pictures of a few of the activities:
