Children love to pretend to be Firefighters, Doctors, Construction Workers, Musicians, Artists and anything grown-up. The Construction Themed Hammer the Syllables Center is great for learning all about syllables and word recognition.
Construction Themed Hammer the Syllables Center
What you need:
- A plastic hammer
- Syllables recording sheets printed out and laminated
- Whiteboard markers
How to complete the activity:
This is one of the Literacy Centres, but you can use morning meeting time to introduce it. Say various construction words and use a plastic hammer to count the syllables. Let the children try too. Then ask the children to hammer each word out and to circle the correct number.
