Mini Presentation
Kinetic Approach to Syllables
Background
This lesson plan is designed to be presented to kindergarten students in a
bilingual blended and or general education classroom. The students have recently
begun learning the days of the week by singing along to an educational tape. Every
morning when the students come into class there are three songs that play before
they gather at carpet, the “days of the week” song has been a new addition to the
playlist. Some students are still confused on which days are meant for school and
which days are spent at home; teaching them the days of the week in different ways
will help them absorb the information.
Overview
The purpose of this activity is to teach the students the days of the week as
well as syllable and phoneme pronunciation. Syllable awareness is one component
of phonological awareness. Students who have well-developed phonological skills
generally learn to read with more success. This activity will help students gain the
ability to hear phonemes that comprise words. Syllable awareness is especially
critical for ESL students when learning English or any other language. The goal is for
students to identify the different phonemes and syllables when they read instead of
just memorizing the pronunciation of a word, this way a student can be given any
word he/she has never seen before and separate it by syllables and phonemes thus
correctly pronouncing it!
Instead of using memorization or repetition tactics, this activity will use a
kinetic approach. This activity involves slowing down each syllable by clapping
against ones hands. If the word only contains one syllable then the teacher claps
below their waist once, for words with two syllables the teacher will clap once
below their waist (mon) and another time perpendicular to their waist (day). And
for words with three syllables the teacher will clap three times: once below their
waist (Sat), once perpendicular to their waist (ur), and lastly above their heads
(day). Once the class has reviewed this approach a couple of times, the teacher can
lead the same activity but in Spanish.
