Activity: Compound Words Deletion (Verbal)

The objective of this activity is to teach your child to isolate syllables in words.


Before playing, make sure that your child is confident in segmenting and blending syllables.


Provide the child with a compound word, verbally. Ask them what the word would be without one part of it. For example, “What is jellyfish without the fish?”
