Do you have students who ALWAYS delete their 'r' sound in blends and minimal pairs just doesn't work? This "Just Add R" series can really help your students sequence their R-Blends correctly. With 12 sequence strips for each R-Blend, you have a total of 84 visuals. If you upload to your iPad you've got some awesome NO PREP cluster reduction materials at your fingertips! At the core, these sequencing strips are minimal pairs, so you can always change and adapt your therapy to a minimal pairs approach once your students can successfully sequence. If you're curious how this works, then read my Blog Post.

Download the Just Add Cluster Reduction Freebie for 'bl', 'dr' and 'sw' blends and try it for yourself!

Using pictures to represent the first sound (a ball for 'b', a drum for 'd') and then combining with the rest of the R-Blend ('rain'), students can break down and sequence their words much easier. These are also great to print and fold over so that your students can 'flip' open and uncover the R-Blend once they have sequenced it and made the new word.

Read on the bloga little bit more about when I have used these to teach.

BOTH color and black & white sheets are included so that you can have a laminated set/no print set AND a set to send for home practice.

I have this passion for creating phonology resources as I find that every child is different and responds to different things. If you'd like to get phonology inspired, then check out:
