We will be playing with words this week and learning to clap syllables in a word, e.g.
cat = 1 clap / syllable
don-key = 2 claps / syllables
di-no-saur = 3 claps / syllables
Can you gather up some objects from around your house that have 1/2/3 or more syllables and have a go at clapping the syllables in each word? For example you might get a tin, pencil and banana.
