This S Cluster Reduction Story is exactly what you need if your students find minimal pairs - or even the concept of putting two sound together - difficult. Using a story form to explain what we are trying to teach the child, it's a fantastic place to START therapy as it promotes hands-on learning activities (visual, auditory, tactile) to and teaches specific metalinguistic concepts
(you can have 'twin sounds'), so that they understand with easy to understand explanations and visuals, their phonological process better.

The 'S' Cluster Reduction Story explores the concept that we have twin sounds and twin mouth movements that go together. It's a fantastic precursor to launching into minimal pairs therapy.
By using visuals, auditory bombardment and discrimination you can get an idea about the child’s phonological system and get an idea about where you need to start for therapy. UPLOAD this story on your iPad for a Phonological Story on the go or laminate and have on the table.
Visual, auditory and tactile activities are suggested so that therapy sessions can be dynamic, fun and interactive. You can then introduce minimal pairs. Minimal Pairs cards (in color and blackline) are included for the following sounds:
• SL cards (7 pairs - 14 cards)
• SK cards (7 pairs - 14 cards)
• SM cards (4 pairs - 8 cards)
• SN cards (7 pairs - 14 cards)
• SP cards (7 pairs - 14 cards)
• ST cards (7 pairs - 14 cards)
• SW cards (6 pairs - 12 cards)
• Total of 90 color, 90 black line cards
Pg. 4-6: Visual, Auditory and Tactile pages with activities to help support the concept
Pg. 7-8: Minimal Pairs word lists in final position (with blank cards to draw your own)
Pg. 9-14: Tail and No Tail Sound visuals in various sizes and activity sheets in COLOR to use as part of therapy
Pg. 15-24: Minimal Pairs Cards in final position - COLOR
Pg. 25-35: A ‘Tail Sound Story’ which introduces the metalinguistic concepts of 'tail' sounds. Great to laminate for functional use. Opportunities for auditory discrimination and bombardment are provided
Pg. 36-41:Tail Sound BLACKLINE visuals and activity sheets to color and send home for carryover

I hope you enjoy a refreshing and meaningful way to teach phonological processes.
