In the Turkish course teaching curriculum and in the principles of the Phonic Based Sentence Method, it is made clear that syllables to be formed have to be formed according to the criteria that syllables have to be easy-to-read, have frequent use in the language, have clear and concrete meanings, be visualizable and have a productive syllable structure. Moreover, with such an approach syllables are formed according to the criterium that syllables have to be meaningful, Such an effort to form syllables according to these criteria will cause both pupils and teachers to face difficulties in the process of reading-writing. One the one hand, the reading rate of children making incorrect spelling in reading and writing will decrease due to spelling, on the other hand, it will be inevitable for them to encounter problems in making sense of what they read. Considering these difficulties, activities that make students active in the process of creating an open and closed syllables and that prevent negative events which prossessing from closed syllables to open syllabes would lead to in terms of the learning process were prepared.
