Have you ever worked with students who overgeneralize their production of the /s/ sound to all words containing the letter "S"? Have you worked with students who don't use their good /s/ sound unless they see the letter?
This activity will help students to learn that in speech, we are thinking about the SOUNDS that words make, not just their letters!
Not every word with the letter "S" has the /s/ sound (leash), and sometimes we can hear the /s/ sound in words without the letter "S" (ice).
This activity contains a sorting grid and 40 words.
1. Cut out the tiles and laminate the grid.
2. Say a tile out loud with the student(s): “shopping”.
3. Does this tile contain the letter “s”? Yes!
4. But, does it contain the /s/ sound….? No!
5. Place it in the correct grid box.
6. Fade cues and have student(s) do the rest independently.
*For homework, send home a blank grid and 20 blank tiles. Have them find/think of 5 words to place in each box.
