Yep, this IS KIDFUN. Have you ever tried to teach very young children to break words into syllables. It’s really all about rhythm. Teach your children to speak chop-py. Try the word “rab-bit.” Then ask them to count the syllables with you. Say “rabbit,” slowly — Rab-bit! 2! Then try “pho-to-graph.” You may need to use fingers for counting. (I know what a terrible thing to suggest!) It’s really fun, though, and quite impressive. Okay, how many syllables in hip-po-po-ta-mus? Kids can do it, especially when you make it a KIDFUN game!
Your child will feel brilliant! Try it in the car — while waiting for a doctor, at a restaurant. Challenge each other, too!
