This Complexity Approach packet is aimed at your phonological students. It targets later developing and complex clusters (vs. earlier developing sounds) as research has shown that this can facilitate a greater system-wide change. It is not the ONLY approach out there, so consider the needs of your caseload.

This resource includes:
➊ --bold, bright, and colorful cards for each of the following clusters (see below) as well as a series of print-and-go worksheets in black and white for easy printing and homework consolidation.
THREE ELEMENT CLUSTERS:
➋ --The following complex clusters are included: /skr/, /spr/, /str/, /spl/ and /skw/.
Your student's HAVE to be able to use the second AND third cluster to use these cards.
TWO ELEMENT CLUSTERS:
➌ --The following clusters are included - these were chosen based on the sonority sequencing principle: /fl/, /fr/, /sl/, /shr/ and /thr/.
Your students DO NOT have to have these individual sounds in their phonemic inventory for you to work on them.
✅ -- Covers 10 clusters (5x 3 element and 5x 2 element)
✅ -- CARDS: Both color and black & white cards are included. There are 9 words per complex cluster, so a total of 90 cards.
✅ -- WORD DRILLS: Each complex cluster has a black & white worksheet that encourages them to say and check each word x5 times.
✅ -- DRILL & DOT: Each complex cluster is spread over two black & white worksheets that encourages them to say and dot each word x10 times.
✅ -- SAY & FIND: Each complex cluster has a black & white worksheet that encourages them to say and find each word x5 times.
I love to get HANDS-ON with resources, so don't just dot or color! Use counters, beads, pom poms, mini erasers, and other 'little' things to get the most of this resource!
