Valentine Syllable Game Directions

I found the Valentine mailboxes pictured above at my local dollar store.

First, write one number on each mailbox with your marker.

Next, cut out one construction paper heart for each syllable picture. Cut and glue the syllable pictures to the hearts, then laminate for durability.

To play, students will take turns selecting a card, identifying the picture and number of syllables in the word, then placing the card in the corresponding mailbox.
