Mini Me is a wordy kind of kid. He loves words and letters and .... talking.... and he also loves scissors so this activity was a great delight for him.
First, he cut out an assortment of February and March themed pictures.
Using a lamb as our guide for one syllable words and a lion as our guide for two syllable words, we divided all the pictures into two piles. To find out if the word was one syllable or two syllables, Mini Me clapped it out.
"Kite. That's only one clap!"
"Shamrock. That's two claps!"
Clap by clap, he divided the pictures into the lamb pile or the lion pile.
When he had gone through all the pictures, he wanted to do more so I got some real objects and he clapped those out, too.
Once all objects and pictures were divided, we played again. We also played again after supper to show off to Daddy.
A round of applause for Mini Me!
