"So great for those kids who need something to "do" during speech!"
Recently updated! Now get 250 articulation punch cards. Low prep and printer ink usage!
75% of 4-5-year-olds no longer produce the phonological process of consonant cluster reduction (Pena-Brooks & Hedge, 2008).
Who: For Speech-Language Pathologists working on consonant cluster reduction errors with students in kindergarten and up. A great supplement to the complexity approach.
Using a hole punch, students track repetitions of /s/l/r/n/ clusters or blends depending on their level in the speech hierarchy:
• imitated sentences
• generated sentence/structured conversation
This is a 75 printable page download (80 total pages with instructions and credits). Included are 25 mini-books sorted by sonority distance:
Begin using when students can produce each cluster sound in isolation.
Where and How:
Use in individual or small group speech sessions.
1. Cut out each page of the mini-book.
HINT: you can cut all three print-outs at the same time to save precious time.
2. Highlight the word, sentence or prompt based on the student’s goal.
3. Students punch a hole for each accurate production.
4. Punch a hole in the corner and secure with a paperclip for home practice.
