This interactive site has four exercises for students to practice counting syllables in words and in lines of poetry. The first part asks students to count the number of syllables in each line of poetry provided. The second part asks them to count the syllables in each line of a haiku and then sort them into the correct order. The third part asks students to put the lines of a cinquain into the correct order by counting syllables and following the pattern. Finally, part four is a game where students can pop each of the balloons that carry a three-syllable word. Students see how many they can get before they either run out of time or run out of lives by clicking on incorrect answers.
