This activity is designed to target final consonant deletion and can also be used to help children with apraxia or other speech disorders practice producing CVC words. There are cards for 66 CVC words:
12 CVC words that end with /p/
15 CVC words that end with /t/
6 CVC words that end with /d/
9 CVC words that end with /n/
6 CVC words that end with /m/
3 CVC words that end with /b/
6 CVC words that end with /k/
9 CVC words that end with /g/
All of the words only include the early-developing consonant sounds /h, w, m, p, b, t, d, k, g/.
Your students build CVC words by adding the correct final consonant to each word.
On each CVC word card, there is a picture of the word on a tree with the word written on the tree’s trunk. The first consonant in the word is written on a green apple. The vowel in the word is written on another green apple. Then there is an open box for your students to add a red apple card with the correct final consonant written on it.
I have included one page of final consonant cards that has 1 red apple with each of the different final consonants written on it. You can use this page if you want to re-use the final consonants for each word. For example, if you want to use one final “p” card and have your students move the card to each CVC words that ends with /p/.
I have also included red apple cards that have the correct number of each final consonant. You should print these cards if you want students to put a red apple card on each CVC word.
There are blank cards at the end of the download so that you can add your own CVC words.
To use this activity:
Cut out the red apple cards that have final consonants written on them.
There are three CVC words on each page. You can cut the CVC words apart to make individual cards if you want to. For each CVC word, have your student choose the correct final consonant (red apple) card and put the card in the open box at the end of the word.
****If you have purchased my CVC ice cream scoops game, there are many of the same CVC words in this activity and in my ice cream scoop activity. I like having a variety of activities that target the same simple CVC words to give my students with apraxia lots of practice!
