This tactile approach to teaching students to reduce the cluster reduction pattern in postvocalic s blends (ps, ts, and ks) is novel and fun! Do you work on the cluster reduction pattern in prevocalic blends like St and Sp? Those same students may also show the cluster reduction pattern in postvocalic s blends ps, ts and ks. In this packet, students touch the meatball for the first stop sound and then trace the s while producing the longer strident sound. Everything you need for these blends is within this packet from auditory bombardment stories to color cards to no prep activities!
Here's what's included in the packet:
3 (6 pages) sound-loaded stories peppered with ps, ts, ks blends,
10 color cards per ps,ts,ks blend, (use in card games, beanbag toss games or dice games)
3 color spaghetti and meatball tracing mats for each ps, ts, ks blend
1 smaller black and white tracing mat for each blend,
3 no prep activities per blend, (use for homework or during therapy),
3 no prep activities that include ps, ts, ks blends on one page,
1 "the meatballs are missing" game (open-ended articulation or reinforcement game)
4 Progress Monitoring Options
