This super fun and engaging phonology resource uses ‘feeding’ as a reinforcer to implement phonological therapy in a way that will motivate your kids. Each animal is associated with a sound (e.g. ‘r’ for rhino and ‘w’ for whale) 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!

Visual prompt cards are 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 Gliding, so you'll find color and black and white images - 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.



✅ -- 3 different feedings mouths for Gliding pairs (whale for ‘w’, rhino for 'r' and lion for 'l')

✅ -- Color & Black+White Pacing Board to help with drilling pairs

✅ -- Minimal Pairs cards in Color & Black+White - 9 minimal pairs for R-W and 9 minimal pairs for L-W
