Syllables are the number of separate beats in a word. These activity sheets will help your students learn were and how to correctly split words up into their component syllables using both word and picture clues. Note for Instructors: Make sure your students understand the difference between syllables and phonemes; they are not the same thing (refer to our phoneme worksheets elsewhere on this site)! Syllable count worksheets are not the meat of what we do around here, but they are necessary to progress towards being fluent with this skill. As always answer keys are found easily.
A syllable is a form of a unit of measure. It is one unit of pronunciation that is said without any form interruption. Every single word has at least one syllable.
