DOT THE SPOT! MATS, focusing on minimal pairs/contrastive pairs.
This includes a NO-PREP version of all the activity pages.. This could be considered a growing
bundle, since I am open to adding more as the demand arises, or requests come in.
The contrastive pairs in this packet include: R/W, L/Y, L/W, SH/S, G/D, K/T, S/TH.
For each word pair, the child is to do one word with a certain sound with a designated color and
the other word with the contrasting sound with the other designated color. (i.e. /r/ is green,
and /w/ is blue, so “read’ would be marked green, and “weed” would be marked blue.)
This is a nice hands-on, fun activity for the kiddos, as they will be required to use a dauber, play
dough, markers, crayons, etc. to mark the mats. The child will say the contrastive pair set, and
“dot it” with the dauber, or whatever you are having them use.
Included in this packet are mats for:
R/W color version
L/W – color version
L/Y– color version
S/TH– color version
SH/S - color version
G/D– color version
K/T– color version
Also, ALL of the ABOVE in black & white version. (For NO-PREP) --- just print and go.
