G/D and K/T Minimal Pair Words with Pictures

One of the most common phonological processes is "fronting" of the /k/ and /g/ sounds. Phonological processes are simplifications of the adult speech. Fronting happens when a child says a sound that is supposed to be produced in the back of the mouth, in the front of the mouth. 

Examples:
Fronting of the /k/ sound: [tea] for key or [sit] for sick
Fronting of the /g/ sound: [down] for gown or [mud] for mug

We made a freebie to help the children who "front" recognize the difference between the /t/ and /k/ sounds and the /d/ and /g/ sounds. Click HERE to download this freebie from our TpT store.
