Rhythm #1 – Syllables
This lesson will explore the rhythm of syllables within words. We will look at multi-syllabic words, and look to discover words with a similar rhythm (including an introduction to correct syllabic emphasis). We will begin with a simple ball game to aid in understanding, and use a team challenge relay to continue our exploration of syllables. This lesson will also include a worksheet – matching words with similar syllabic makeup, and composing them in a story for presentation to the group.
