Put your hand under your chin and say the word "me". How many times did your chin go down? I hope you said 1 time. That means the word me is a 1-syllable word. Now, put your hand under your chin again and say "little". How many times did your chin go down this time? You should have said 2 times. That tells us that the word little is a 2-syllable word. Use this trick of putting your hand under your chin as you say the words to tell how many syllables each word in the activity has.
