Grade 3 Lesson Plan: Syllables

Differentiated Learning Objectives: 1. All students will be able to identify and count the number of syllables in a given word. 2. Most students will be able to divide words into syllables and correctly pronounce them. 3. Some students will be able to create their own words with a specific number of syllables.

Starter: - Begin the lesson by asking students if they know what a syllable is. Allow a few students to share their understanding. - Show a few flashcards with different words and ask students to clap or stomp for each syllable they hear in the word. - Discuss the concept of syllables and explain that they are the beats or chunks in a word.

Opportunities for ICT: - Use an interactive whiteboard or projector to display words and syllable divisions. - Utilize online resources or apps that provide syllable games or activities for students to practice.

Cross-Curricular Link: - Connect the concept of syllables to music by discussing how syllables are like the beats in a song. Play a popular song and ask students to clap or stomp for each syllable they hear.

Content of the Lesson: 1. Introduction to Syllables: - Explain that syllables are the parts of a word that contain a vowel sound. - Provide examples of one-syllable words (e.g., cat, dog) and ask students to identify the vowel sound in each word. - Discuss how some words have more than one syllable and demonstrate by clapping or stomping for each syllable in multi-syllable words (e.g., ba-nan-a).

  1. Dividing Words into Syllables: - Teach students different strategies to divide words into syllables, such as looking for vowel sounds, consonant patterns, or word parts. - Model how to divide words into syllables using examples on the board (e.g., but-ter-fly, ap-ple). - Provide opportunities for students to practice dividing words into syllables in pairs or small groups.

  2. Creating Words with Syllables: - Challenge students to create their own words with a specific number of syllables (e.g., two-syllable words). - Provide a list of prefixes, suffixes, and root words for students to combine and create new words. - Encourage students to share their created words with the class and explain how they divided them into syllables.

Activities: - Play a syllable sorting game where students sort word cards into different syllable categories. - Provide worksheets or online activities where students identify the number of syllables in given words. - Conduct a syllable scavenger hunt where students search for words around the classroom or in books and divide them into syllables.

Plenary: - Review the concept of syllables by asking students to share what they have learned. - Play a quick game where students take turns saying a word and the class claps or stomps for each syllable. - Summarize the lesson by emphasizing the importance of understanding syllables for reading and pronunciation.

Assessment: - Observe students’ participation and engagement during activities and discussions. - Collect completed worksheets or online activity results to assess students’ ability to identify and count syllables. - Evaluate students’ created words to assess their understanding of dividing words into syllables.
