During Better Hearing and Speech Month, I dedicated an entire week to phonological processes. On one of my posts, I asked the question, "Which phonological process do you encounter the most?" I had an overwhelming response from fellow readers stating that cluster reduction is by far the most popular process among their students and clients. With that information in mind, I created Cluster Reduction Rodeo!
This activity is designed to be used with students that demonstrate the phonological process of cluster reduction. Cluster reduction is defined as the simplification of a cluster by deleting one of it’s sounds.
For example, the word school may be produced, “kool”
This is a 20 page activity that includes:
A game board. Use this game board with the cluster cards. Have students practice a target(s) from the cards then move across the board.
106 cluster target cards for the S, R, L sounds.
Bonus game cards!
There is also a page of blank cards that you can use however necessary for your students' individual needs.
Here is what some fellow SLPs that have downloaded this activity have said about it:
Quick and easy activity with cute Rodeo graphics. I like that she included some activities with medial /s/ blends!- Speech2u
