Minimal Pairs Matchup: Velar Fronting
An Interactive Book
2 mini books for Phonological Processing
These books were designed to the process velar fronting in a fun interactive book format. The books are set up with two activities for each target. The student will first fill in the missing word of a phrase with one of the picture symbols on the bottom of the page (example: open a door with a ______ drink hot ______). This page contains the minimal pair. If the child uses a "front" sound instead a "back" sound, I hold up the other picture and say the phrase (open a door with tea??) to emphasize that the word changes. The book then prompts the student to use the original pointer tool (stored at the top of the book) to point to the picture with the "back" sound. The next page asks the student to practice the target word three more times using my original sound cue. This provides a tactile and visual cue for the "back" sound.
Each book comes with a homework page to send home with the students.
