Divide Tricky Words Into Syllables

Ask your child to explain the rules for dividing words into syllables. If she can't think of any, give her a list of words broken down into syllables, such as go/ing, stop/ped, and Wed/nes/day. From these examples, develop a list of as many rules as you can think of together. Then, take turns finding difficult words in books and break them down.
