Breaking words down into syllables is a great spelling strategy to help you spell long words. This means you break the word down into little spoken chunks and each chunk is called a syllable. Each syllable usually has a vowel in it: advertisement = ad / ver / tise / ment.
To help children think about words as sound, we can help them break words into smaller parts. One way to break down the syllable is into onset
(everything before the vowel) and rime (the vowel and everything after it). For example, sleep could be broken into /sl/ and /eep/.
