Syllable Match Game 

Have students work in small groups, each of which will need a timer with a second hand. Groups will choose twenty spelling words and make a card for each of the syllables, keeping first syllables and second syllables separate. To play, one member, acting as the announcer, picks a card from the first-syllable pile and reads it. Player 1 then has twenty seconds to find the card for the second syllable and say and spell the word. A correct answer earns one point. Players take turns matching syllables until all the words are used up.
