Silly Sets - Minimal Pairs

#CRD67-Silly Sets: Minimal Pairs for Maximum Progress

I really like the idea behind this product! It makes discrimination tasks fun for children and clearly indicates how incorrect articulation (or a phonological process) impacts word meaning. I’ve had a lot of laughs from my kindergarten kiddos!

Details too small

#CRD67-Silly Sets: Minimal Pairs for Maximum Progress

I rarely use these with my first and second grade students. Some of the cards are great, but some of the details that are relevant to the discrimination task are very small and difficult for my students to see.

My kindergarteners love these cards. They are just gaining awareness of their final consonant deletions and the visual pairing on these cards is perfect for them. Plus, they see the silliness that can happen when they do not put all of the sounds in their words!

Funny!

#CRD67-Silly Sets: Minimal Pairs for Maximum Progress

Kids find these pretty funny. Although I wouldn't spend a whole session on these, they are a fun way to do some minimal pair practice with no extra prep. Most pictures are easy for kids to understand. There are few that are obscure. Overall, I'm quite pleased with them.

Great Concept!

#CRD67-Silly Sets: Minimal Pairs for Maximum Progress

I love the concept of this item! Using the minimal pair sentences to make the kids aware of the change in meaning is great! The kids love the illustrations! I just wish it included more processes.
