Description

Need help working on speech sounds?!

Specifically for FRONTING and BACKING?!

This worksheet is JUST for you!

What is Fronting? Fronting is a phonological process (a pattern of errors) that occurs when a child produces a sound that is made in the BACK of the mouth, in the FRONT of the mouth! * Hence the name! One example, is when a child might say "tat" for "cat!" Cue this minimal pairs worksheet to help reduce FRONTING speech errors!

What is Backing? Backing is also a phonological process (a pattern of errors) that occurs when a child "backs" the sound, which means they replace a sound made in the front of a mouth, with one made in the back! (opposite of fronting!) For example, a child might say "kake" for "take!" Cue this minimal pairs worksheet to help reduce BACKING speech errors!

Try this FREE minimal pairs /T/ and /K/ Speech Sound Worksheet!

These sounds are appropriate to target between ages 3-4! By age 4, most children have developed these sounds!

But, why use minimal pairs?!

The first step in helping your child correctly produce speech sounds is by making sure they can recognize and hear the difference! If the child is unable to DIFFERENTIATE between the phonemic sounds, they will have a MUCH more difficult time mastering sounds! Therefore, minimal pairs (especially with visuals) HELP children SEE and HEAR the difference between the sounds!

These visual pictures are a GREAT place to start when working on speech sounds!

Change one sound in a word and it’s a completely different sound! Use minimal pairs with auditory bombardment or cut out the pictures and use them as flash cards!

We hope you LOVE this FREE /t/ and /k/ worksheet as much as we do!
