Train Tracks for Phonological Processing No Prep!

Pairs with the book "Old Tracks New Tricks" by Jessica Peterson

Innovation Press

The book "Old Tracks New Tricks" is a darling book about new train tracks teaching old train tracks that it is okay be different and try something new! It is a wonderful story with amazing real illustrations. You can find the book on Amazon by searching the title, or you can find a link to it in this download.

This phonological processing pack contains images from the book and is a great way to work on common processes after reading the book. Your students will love how the images on the pages/mats match the book! This product can also be used as a stand alone product for students who love trains!

This product was designed to target common phonological processes. There are pages to target the following processes: final consonant deletion, cluster reduction (initial sblends), stopping, and velar fronting. I also created visual cues final consonants and sblends. This activity is perfect for pk-1st grade depending on skill level. This download contains color and black & white pages. Try the freebie sample for final consonant here

Pages included:

☆ Final Consonants (final consonant deletion) final p, b, m, n, t, d, k, g, s, mixed

☆ Initial sblends (cluster reduction): sp, st, sn, sm, sk, sl, sw, mixed

☆ Keep it Going (stopping): initial f, s, z, sh final f, s, z, sh

☆ Back Sounds (velar fronting): initial k, g; final k& g; mixed initial k & g; mixed final k& g

Suggested Uses:

→ Use with trains or train tracks: If you have similar trains and tracks you can use them to cover up the images on the pages/mats as you practice the words. If you use a train piece, the student can drive the train over the track and practice the word. This can be done with the color or black & white versions.

→ Use with play dough: The student will smash play dough over each piece as they practice the word on the track. (I suggest using the color version laminated or in a page protector for this activity).

→ Use with crayons/bingo dotters: Use the black and white version. The student will color or dot each train track as they practice the word.

→ Use with bingo chips. The student will place a bingo chip over the track as they practice the word. At the end the student can scoop up the bingo chips with a magnet wand (if the chips are magnetic and you have a magnet wand to use). This can be done with the color or black & white versions.
