Description: "I -- tired." "He -- not hungry." Do these sound familiar? Omission of the BE verbs "am" and "is" so common, especially as a final consonant in contraction forms. Is it a grammatical error, a phonological final consonant deletion error, or BOTH? Using the motor speech approach, this competitive, high-trial game aims at training the learners' speech system to include these final consonants in coarticulation drills using EMOTION vocabulary. 【The Grid Game features】 - 6 "am/is" combos: "I'm +, I'm not +, She's +, He's +, It's +, It's not +" - 2 sets of 5 VOWEL initial vocabulary (ex. upset, embarrassed) - 2 sets of 5 LABIAL & /h/ initial vocabulary (ex. fed up, worried, happy) - 2 sets of 5 ALVEOLAR & PALATAL initial vocabulary (ex. nervous, shy) - 2 sets of 5 VELAR initial vocabulary (ex. confused, guilty) - 16 total game boards. Each set has 2 versions to avoid memorization. ◆ This deck is NOT meant to be a set of independent task cards.
