We're putting out phonology fires with this minimal pairs activity for speech therapy community helper week! This packet is developed to target phonological disorders using minimal pairs. This packet will also be beneficial for other speech disorders. It's community helper week in speech therapy!
To Play: 228 cards (114 minimal pairs) and 6 homework sheets are included to target phonological processes using minimal pairs. Each card includes a flame that includes an image and word. The top left corner of the card is marked by the pattern to help organize the card set. A blank set of flames and a “fire vocabulary” set is also included for your mixed groups!
Interactive Play #1: Print flame cards and place them around your space. Gather small firetruck toy (or use a straw to be your pretend hose) and walk around your space putting out fires!
Interactive Play #2: Gather a spray bottle and small plastic bin. Laminate the cards. Have your fire fighter spray the cards with the hose (spray bottle) to put out the flame!
Practice the minimal pairs at the auditory bombardment, auditory discrimination, and verbal expression level!
