Thank you so much for viewing this quick little intervention set. It was designed to engage the students in a brief session of phoneme deletion of initial sounds. Directions for use are included.
*picture cards from pack that are laminated and cut out
How to use:
Say: We’re going to play a game where the beginning sound of a word is left off. For example, bed without /b/ is ed. Now you try. What is can without /c/? (The child should say an.) Continue doing this with the picture cards from the kit, being sure to tell the child to leave off the beginning sound. Each time the child gets the sound correct, give them the card to hold as a reward.
This could even be done as a game in a small group.
Continue doing this intensely with the remaining syllable cards for about 5 minutes or so.
Use again daily if possible until the student has a firm understanding of phoneme deletion of initial sounds.
There are 60 cards in all!
This is a skill needed for the Phonological Awareness Skill Test (P.A.S.T) – Skill #14
Other P.A.S.T kits available with more to come soon!
