a quick activity to elicit phonemes at any level
Need a super simple and super easy activity you can pull together on the fly and that works with any student?
Take a sheet of paper or construction paper, draw a line down the middle, and write a couple comparison words across the top. For this student, we were targeting /s/, so my words were "summer" or "not summer". Pick any words that have your target phoneme. Cut apart target pictures and place them in the appropriate column.
This is so simple and quick to make, and can be used in a variety of ways. If working at the word level, just say which column you are putting them in. With my student, we were working at the sentence level, so we said "____ is for summer." or "___ is not for summer." It would also be perfect for students working on categories, sentence formation, and answering questions.
I also made a pocket on the back to store the words in. Sometimes we just glue the pictures on instead. Easy peasy!
