Using minimal pairs in artic therapy is a common evidence based approach. Not only have I found it useful with speech production, but it’s been invaluable with those early school aged kiddos who start having difficulty with early reading writing skills due to their misarticulations.
To address both of these tasks, I’ve been creating activities that allow us to listen, say and sort, plus reinforce sound/symbol associations.
Print the flip book, fold and cut on the dotted line to create two flaps. Give the child a set of pictures and have them either say the words or listen to your production and identify the initial sound. Glue in place. Send home to say and color for extra practice. There are two different sets of pictures so you can do the activity twice with the same student.
These sheets contain six pictures with the initial phoneme choice below. The student simply colors or uses a dauber to make the selection. Again, pictures are selected so they can be used for additional color and say practice at home.
Pages print black and white.
