Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction Sample:

  1. Display some of the students’ names (first and/ or last) for all to see. Ask students how a person would learn how to pronounce a name if they had never seen the name before.
  2. Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce syllables by dividing some of the names into syllables.
  3. Display several more names of students and ask students to divide them into syllables.
  4. Distribute Syllables content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  5. Distribute Activity pages. Read and review the instructions. Pair students. Distribute scissors. Stress that some of the syllables may be used more than once, and some may only be used one time.
  6. Once completed, allow students to share words from their lists. Additional words than the answer key shows may be possible.
