These phonology friendly ‘feeding mouths’ are such an engaging way to implement phonological therapy in a way that will motivate your kids... because who doesn't like feeding??!! Each animal is associated with a sound (e.g. ‘t’ for tiger and ‘k’ for crocodile) and these are what you use as the reinforcement for minimal pairs therapy:
you have to feed the right animal the right card… or the right food!
A cute visual prompt card is provided to help your kids remember what sound they have to use for each animal, and I’ve also included some handy pacing boards to help drill and repeat minimal pairs cards. Therapy activity ideas for auditory discrimination tasks, as well as the word-phrase-sentence level are listed to get you thinking how to use this in your room.
Minimal pairs can be such an effective way to treat the phonological process of Fronting - so there are card in initial and final position - as well as color and black and white. So you can easily have a set for the therapy room and send some cards home for kids to color and practice in an easy print-and-go format.
• 4 different feedings mouths for Fronting pairs (Tiger & Crocodile for ‘t’ and ‘k’ and Donkey & Gorilla for ‘d’ and ‘g’)
• Food pictures that go with each animal
• Color & Black+White Pacing Board to help with drilling pairs
• Minimal Pairs cards in Color & Black+White - 16 cards for T-K initial, 14 cards for T-K final, 14 cards for D-G initial, 8 cards for D-G final
• Total of 52 cards (26 minimal pairs)
I love making creative resources that push kids to get in tons of practice while being fun and motivating, so I welcome feedback on how these have worked in your therapy room :)
