These activities are not new and are not my original ideas. These are activities that we all have done when working with our little ones. I have simply tried to make the target stimuli easy to grab and use. I did use all my own artwork :) I am providing you with printable stimulus targets!
Let me tell you about BEAR HUNT and BOWLING for Consonant Singletons.
Stops- /p/ and /t/;
Nasals- /m/ and /n/;
Glides- /w/ and /j/.
As well as ﬁnal consonant patterns of:
Stops /p/ and /t/
Nasals /m/ and /n/ following Barbara Hodsonʼs cycles approach.
This 42 page download includes everything you need to make 160 target cards for the bear Bear Hunt and a Bowling games. Once you have them made you only have to pull out the target stimuli you need for the day.
The BOWLING game will use the same target stimuli just printed with the bowling pins on the back. Two activities for the price of one :)
The other set targets S Clusters, Velars, Alveolars, and Liquid /l/ and /r/. With it you get the same bear and bowling card backs but the target stimulus is different.
The focus of this set is on these consonant patterns:
S Clusters- initial /sp/, /st/, /sm/ and /sn; ﬁnal /ts/, /ps/ and /ks/ with the focus on pluralization.
Velars- ﬁnal /k/, initial /k/ and /g/
Aleveolars- ﬁnal /t/, initial /t/, /d/, and /n/
Liquid- initial /l/ and /r/
This 46 page download includes everything you need to make 176 target cards for the Bear Hunt and a Bowling games.
With the Bear Hunt game you will simply hide their target pictures around the room and let them go on a Bear Hunt. When they ﬁnd a bear they bring it to you and name it.
To go bowling, use clothespins to stand the pictures up with the bowling pin picture visible. Roll a ball to knock the “pins” down. They will say the picture words on the pins that have been knocked down. Complete directions are in the downloads.
My little ones loved these two games and I am sure yours will too!
