The Importance of Syllables in Spelling

    All skilled spellers are good at breaking words up into syllables.
    Syllables are the individual sounds that make up a word:
    • care-ful
    • hos-pit-al
    • u-ni-ver-si-ty
    Breaking a word into syllables makes it easier to deal with
    one small bit at a time.

    1. Read aloud each of the following words, then break it into
    syllables. Try "clapping" the word. One clap for each syllable. Or tap your desk.
    Finally memorize it and write it in the third column -
    without looking back! The first one has been done for you.
