  • You can use the same activities used in the assessment for teaching and practice purposes. Target those kinds of syllables that the learner had trouble with, and just focus on them. There is no need to go over the kinds of syllables they already know.
  • Teaching and practising syllables, as with all the phonological awareness activities, can be made really enjoyable by using contexts that engage learners.
  • Remember that learners should not be engaging with printed text during these activities. It’s all done by ear.
