R Sound Minimal Pairs
Minimal pairs for prevocalic and vocalic R! Enjoy effective and engaging speech therapy sessions with this workbook.
Does your student have difficulty differentiating between stressed vocalic ER and other vocalic R contexts (AR, EAR, AIR, IRE and OR)? Do they vowelize vocalic R? For example, do they say pot instead of part? These worksheets were designed for this situation! They contain visuals and word lists to help students hear and see the difference between vocalic R word pairs.
There are also pages to address prevocalic /r/ with minimal pairs. So if your student substitutes L for R or W for R, you’ll want this resource in your collection!
