A hands-on syllable activity for your preschool, pre-k or kindergarten classroom. The clip card activity provides opportunities for syllable practice, syllable segmenting, and syllable counting fun. A great way to work on phonological awareness and early reading skills with your kids. Perfect for your ELA centers, literacy centers, and literacy work stations.


  • Identify the picture on each card
  • Determine the number of syllables (claps)
  • Place an arrow clip on the correct number on the card.

Use the cards individually, in a group, or bind into clip card books


  • 81 clip cards
  • Printable arrows (attach these to clothespin clips)
  • Cover (bind the sets to make clip books)


The set includes 3 color-coded sets (for easy sorting).  Use them for kids at different levels.

Orange Set 27 clip cards - Compound words are used in the first set because children can more easily identify multiple syllables in compound words.

Green Set - 27 clip cards -1 and 2 syllable words

Purple Set - 27 clip cards - 1, 2, and 3 syllable words

Children enjoy using clip cards in literacy centers, work stations, as a RTI activity, or in a take-home bag.
