To play, cut out the word cards and place them all face down on the table. Take it in turns to turn a card over and read the word and its individual syllables out loud. Keep the words you have turned over; when all the cards have been collected, count the total of syllables for all your words. The winner is the person with the most syllables.
Rulers at the ready! Before you measure your items, ask a grown up to estimate how many centimetres long each item will be, then estimate the length yourself, too. Whose estimate will be the closest?

Cut out the words below, muddle them up and place them face down. Each player takes it in turns to turn two cards over and read the words aloud. If the words are the singular word and its plural when a suffix has been added they keep the pair; if not they turn them back over. When all the pairs have been collected the winner is the player with the most pairs.
Using your ruler, draw a line joining the dots that are the same colour. Before you measure your line, estimate how long you think the line is, then measure the line with your ruler. How close was your estimate to the actual measurement?
