Sound Destinations: 11 common minimal pair practice sheets for EFL

Sound Destinations: 11 common minimal pair practice sheets for EFL

A common EFL activity that is very good for helping students practise their pronunciation and identify the differences between minimal pairs. The teacher should demonstrate the activity with the whole class first. 1. Each student receives a sound destination card 2. Students form into pairs 3. One student becomes the guide, and says either of the words on the first row. 4. The listening student must follow the line in the direction of the correct word. 5. The first student now chooses one of the next two minimal pairs, and the listening student follows again. 6. Continue along the four sets of minimal pairs until the listener identifies the city they have finished on. Easy to use and easy to understand, these cards help students to identify pronunciation points and work on them with or without supervision. These 11 sheets cover minimal pairs that students commonly struggle with, including /l/ /r/, /th/ /s/, /v/ /b/, /i/ /ai/, and more.

Phonics: Phonics Assessment Phases 2-5

Phonics: Phonics Assessment Phases 2-5

This assessment resource provides you with everything you need in one handy pack! I have created this pack with convenience in mind! Basically just download and you are virtually ready to go! You can make an assessment booklet for each student by printing back-to-back - one booklet for all phases - how handy is that? Should you wish to assess using single pages, each page contains a section for a student's personal details. The assessment booklet is made up of Master Recording Sheets, all clearly labelled, as well as Student Sheets to carry out the relevant tasks. These are provided for each phase. The pack also includes all the materials you require to assess each stage: sound cards, tricky word cards, nonsense word cards, as well as the first hundred high frequency words. All cards are labelled by phase, set and type, as well as colour-coded by phase. Should you wish to save on colour ink, just print in grayscale - each card is labelled to avoid confusion. Apart for printing the student booklet, the only other thing you need to do is give the cards a little attention! I would also recommend that you laminate each card, so they can be used over and over as you assess your whole class every year. So basically print and laminate! Make sure to read the Teacher Notes, as well as the Assessment Summary and Assessment Instructions and you are good to go! This pack has been a labour of love and I believe I had included everything needed for any educator to assess students' progress in Letters and Sounds. If you feel the pack would benefit from any additions - please contact me at teacherstoolkitblog@gmail.com Also - a little heads up - watch this space, as a Phonics Passport for students will be hitting my shop very soon! ****************************************************** CONTENT ⊛ Cover/Contents/Teacher Notes ⊛ Booklet/Assessment Instructions/Assessment Summary ⊛ Phase 2 Assessment ⊛ Phase 3 Assessment ⊛ Phase 4 Assessment ⊛ Phase 5 Assessment ⊛ Phase 2 Cards: Sounds/Tricky/Nonsense ⊛ Phase 3 Cards: Sounds/Tricky/Nonsense ⊛ Phase 4 Cards: Sounds/Tricky/Nonsense ⊛ Phase 5 Cards: Sounds/Nonsense/100 HF ⊛ TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 88 ********************************************************** RELATED RESOURCES All Phonics Resources ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Phonics
