                             ROBOT WORDS




Target Skills:           Blend syllables
Resources Needed:         Running Record



Organisation:            Small group; whole class




Instructions:

   Tell the children: “I am going to say some words broken up into
    syllables or chunks, slowly like a robot. You have to listen and guess
    the word I am saying.”

   Pronounce one-, two-, three- or four-syllable words in a monotone with
    syllables separated at about one-second intervals (e.g. COM – PU –
    TER).

   In small-group play each child can take a turn to blend the syllables
    and say the word, scoring a point for each word said correctly. In a
    class situation children can be chosen at random, can put their hands
    up to guess, or take turns systematically around the room.

   If a child has persistent problems with this skill, repeat the word
    several times with the gap between syllables shortened (making them
    easier to blend) until the child „hears‟ the word. Then repeat again
    with syllables separated by one-second intervals.
