Salad Sort: Syllable Practice

My students are OBSESSED with this activity! It started as a whole group, teacher led activity. But…they ask it for it so much, I now use it during reading rotations at small group time. I got the idea from the book Teaching Reading Sourcebook. It’s a fairly thick book, but it has ideas and tips for all ages so you can take it with you if you switch grade levels.

The activity is pretty simple. Fill a big bowl with play items that would go in a salad (you could also print pictures). Get 4 additional bowls or containers and label with 1 sticker, 2 stickers, 3 stickers, and 4 stickers.

Students pick a food item from the big bowl and then clap out the syllables. If there are 2 syllables, he/she puts it in the container marked with 2 stickers and so on.

There are examples on my teachertube page…you can clock the link below to check it out!
