Spike the Snake: Interactive Book for Phonological Processing
Initial sblend: sm (1 book)
This a fun and interactive book that targets initial sblends. It come with a unique snake piece (Spike) that the student gets to hold throughout the book as a cue to use their /s/ sound in initial sblend words. This acts as visual, tactile, and auditory cue (“snake sound”). As they say each target, they wiggle Spike as they produce the /s/ sound at the beginning of the word.
The premise of the book: Each page has a person saying a phrase leaving off the /s/ sound in an sblend word. It is the student’s job to help them say their “snake sound” with the help of Spike the snake. There are 4 targets on each page (36 total targets during the story). I also made a black and white homework page with the targets from the book to send home with the student. There is a bonus Spike the Snake coloring page too!
This book is designed to target the phonological process of cluster reduction. This book targets SM words but I have a whole series to target: st, sp, sn, sm, sl, sw, & sk! I have even combined targets into pairs (sn&sm, st&sp, and sl&sw) for students who need to target more than one sblend at a time.
