Are you needing a fun packet to help teach Final Consonant Deletion? Do you want to use (metaphonological) cues to help your students understand that some words have tails (just like animals) and to use their ‘tail sound’ at the end of words. It’s a powerful concept that can help to increase awareness and make your students think about their sounds at the end of words.

✅ — Listening for Tails – Four auditory discrimination boards. Can you hear if a tail sound was used or not? This simple task encourages students to judge whether a word sounded ‘funny’ or not and match it to the animals on the board
✅ — Tail Sound Puzzle – Match the animal with its tail and smoothly blend those sounds together. One syllable animals have been chosen, with a total of 27 animals
✅ — Flip Book – Flip through + say the animals and tail sounds – this can be another great visual to flip the tail ‘up’ or cover it to make your children more aware that they forgot to say their tail sound.
✅ — Drill & Draw – Say the animal name five times then draw its tail on. This is really fun and a great activity to upload on the iPad (3 pages)
✅ — Match the Tail – Say the animal’s name and draw a line to its tail sound (3 pages)
✅ — Record Form – to help monitor progress and make observations

While I might like to print and laminate the puzzle and flipbook, I like to upload the other activities onto my iPad to save printing and make the products user-friendly

    What a fantastic resource! I’ve been using this with some of my children who omit their final consonants, and it has been a fantastic visual system/prompt for them. Thank you Rebecca for creating such a fantastic tool for working on FCD!!!
