This is a great option to keep students' hands busy while they work on using /s/ and /l/ blends in words! You can use this product two ways- as a "Smash Mat" with Playdoh, and as a worksheet to color and send home. This targets the phonological process of consonant cluster reduction (omitting one of the consonant sounds in a blend).
It also targets fine motor skills, as the student should draw lines between the minimal pairs (or use play dough to make lines) before "smashing" the play dough on each picture. All targets have pictures, with words included above each picture to encourage literacy development. Great for non-readers! Most words are high-frequency words to encourage carryover.
Included Smash Mats:
- 2 pages of /s/ blend minimal pairs
- 2 pages of /l/ blend minimal pairs
- 1 page of mixed /s/ and /l/ blend minimal pairs
- 2 progress monitoring pages with all words
