Where we went for help with syllables/segmenting.
This past week, Biggun (13 years old) had an activity in his PACE Word Building that he had to do Syllables/ Segmenting . He had trouble with it. I am not sure why but he does. We tried all kinds of activities. From clapping the words out to hitting the table to the words. For some reason it was not clicking. I went on a hunt to find some extra practice and found some on SpellingCity.com. I love that I can upload his words from his PACE Word Building book onto SpellingCity then he can play games with those words. One of the games is a syllables/segmenting game. That was exactly what he needed. I also found a syllable lesson on Vocabulary.co.il Where Vocabulary Can Be Fun! I had Biggun watch that lesson. Along with syllables pattern lesson on Learning Games For Kids. I am so impressed on how quickly Biggun caught on to this after doing these simple things. Sometimes what Mom says is not enough. I am okay with saying that. Sometimes it takes hearing the same thing from somewhere else before my own child will accept it. One of the best parts about homeschooling is the ability to use any and all resources I need to teach with.
