Invite the class to solve the puzzles as a group. The class should already be familiar with the concept of syllables, but you can review the term by reminding them that a syllable is a section of a word with one vowel sound. Ask the students to count the number of syllables in each phrase. Once the class has reached the correct answers, explain that "hinky pinkies" have solutions with two syllables per word, and "hinkety pinketies" have three syllables per word. Write a few of these multi-syllable clues on the board. Each time a student correctly solves a clue, ask them whether their answer is a hinky pinky or a hinkety pinkety.
