TPT Tuesday: /K, G/ Advance Practice

Posted by

Hello and welcome back for another TPT Tuesday! This week we wanted to share our /K, G/ Advanced Practice!

What is it?

  • 10 slides to practice initial /k,g/ words
  • 13 slides to practice final /k,g/ words
  • 9 slides to practice medial /k,g/ words

/k,g/ Advance Practice is a no-prep, no-print resource for practicing velar target sounds in the most challenging contexts.

Practice begins with the least challenging context for /k,g/, such as /h/ or a bilabial sound. Students will imitate or read the words as each new image comes in. The context that the target sound is in becomes more challenging, until the final word(s), which contains a back sound in the presence of an alveolar sound. An example of this progression is cab, cap, cash, catch, cast, can, can’t, cat.

Who is it for?

This resource is great for students who have achieved their phonological goal of reducing fronting but demonstrate difficulty saying /k/ and /g/ within words that also have /t,d/, such as coatdonkey, or tack. This grab-n-go resource, for readers and non-readers, is a systematic articulation approach for the production of words containing the target phoneme and the error sound.

How do you use it?

To use, click “READ ONLY” to open the document. Advance to the slide # for the sound position to be worked on. Open “Slide Show” mode. Click for each image to “fly-in” or to transition to the next page. Students can read or imitate the target words. This PowerPoint presentation can be used for individual and group therapy, during in-person and telepractice sessions.

This material is much more fun than reading word lists or hoping for enough targets in a book. Instead, you can engage your student with fun graphics, bright colors, cool transitions, and inclusive characters! The /k,g/ Advanced Practice has plenty of reps, which is great for Motor Learning Theory for Articulation.

Thank you for your support! Be sure to leave us a review, we love hearing your feedback!
