This "Just Add" concept is a visual and tactile support for children who present with the phonological process of cluster reduction. It is minimal pairs at its core, but there is a sound component where you add the first sound e.g. a 'b', 'd' or 's' in this version to another word, to help blend clusters together for example 's-wing' = 'swing'.
It can be a useful starting point to get your students to visualize - then verbalize the use of clusters if typical minimal pairs therapy is really hard for them.
In this free sample I've included 'bl' for L-Blends, 'dr' for R-Blends and 'sw' for S-Blends. The FULL version has all the possible 'L', 'R' and 'S' Blends.
✅ -- 12x 'bl' strips
✅ -- 12x 'dr' strips
✅ -- 12x 'sw' strips
✅ -- BOTH color and black & white versions
If you'd like to look at each individual 'S', 'L' and 'R' resource, then the Just Add Bundle has all the links. I'd love some feedback on these, share your stories :)
