This interactive activity is a wonderful way to work on eliminating cluster reductions. The picture for the word that completes the sentence (the target word) is first picked from two choices, indicating an awareness of the difference in meaning between the two minimal contrast pair words. Next the student places the picture into the sentence and says the sentence, making sure to pronounce the target word correctly. Directions for prep and use are included.
Sentences and minimal contrast pair pictures for the following cluster reductions are available in both color and black and white versions.
- /s/ clusters
- /l/ clusters
- /r/ clusters
