Once I brought in my tap lights, they were such a hit with my students!! I have so many students with different needs, I wanted to find a way to use them with all groups!
One way I decided to use them was for discriminating between minimal pairs. I took two tap lights and placed them on my table. I put minimal pair pictures behind them. I said one of them and the student had to light up with word I said. Once they had mastered discriminating with my speech, they got to discriminate their speech. I took out my handy dandy recorder and recorded them saying each word. Then I played it back for them and the student had to light up with word they heard. It definitely helped made minimal pairs fun and exciting.
