These target word cards can be used when focusing on phonological/articulation goals. Specifically, these cards can be used to focus on remediation of the pattern of initial consonant sequences/s-cluster “sp,” especially within the cycles approach.
These word cards are ordered by difficulty. The initial words (spy, spin, spot) are provided with minimal contrasts. Phonological approaches to speech remediation include sound awareness, in particular, learning that changing sounds changes the meaning of words. Thus, including the sequence of “S,” “pie,” and “spy” demonstrates the importance of marking both sounds in the consonant sequence “sp.”
After printing, cut each page into four word cards. These words cards may be put on a word ring to create individualized word cards to review with each student/client.
**Consider therapy/take home games from my store that work on the SP-cluster.; "I Spy with My Little Eye," "Match the Spoon," and "Spot on the Monster."
