This FUN and MOTIVATING pack will not only give you over 180 Minimal Pairs for the phonological processes of Fronting, Stopping, Voicing and Gliding, but adorable and big animal mouths so that your kids can 'feed' the animals (27 mouths in total) either the matching minimal pairs OR food that goes w

Make phonology fun and engaging with these animal-themes ‘feeding mouths’. Each animal is associated with a sound (e.g. ‘p’ for panda and ‘b’ for bull) and these are what you use as the reinforcement for minimal pairs therapy: you have to feed the right animal the right card… or the right food!

Covering five different voicing pairs (p-b, t-d, k-d, f-v, s-z) you have tons of resources at your fingertips to work on this phonological process. Visual prompt cards are provided to help your kids remember what sound they have to use for each animal, and I’ve also included some handy pacing boards to help drill and repeat minimal pairs cards. Therapy activity ideas for auditory discrimination tasks, as well as the word-phrase-sentence level are listed to get you thinking how to use this in your room.

Minimal pairs can be such an effective way to treat the phonological process of Voicing - so there are cards in initial and final position - as well as color and black and white. So you can easily have a set for the therapy room and send some cards home for kids to color and practice in an easy print-and-go format.
