Syllables are ways to split words into speech sounds. We naturally say words using syllables, but we don’t usually think about it until we need to separate the syllables for reading or spelling purposes. If you feel you need more information on what syllables are or how to use them, online practice is a good place to start. So, why do we need syllables?


When we learn to read, and as we encounter more difficult words, we may need to decode a word. You’ll often hear someone telling a reader to “sound it out” or “break the word into parts.” When we do this, breaking the word into syllables can help us read the word. Here are a few examples:


Maker- two syllables, ma/ker


The a in tiger is a long a making the sound “a.” If the word had been broken up like this, mak/er, we would pronounce the a as a short a, as in the word apple and the beginning of the word would be “mak.”


 Love- one syllable

bucket  - two syllables

strawberry- three syllables

Practice syllables in our fun visual worksheets.


These sheets can be laminated.
