L Word List
Below you will find word lists that you can use to make flashcards, stimuli for an articulation game, quick practice at home, etc...I have provided the word lists in 3 different formats:
- First, there is a word list for quick viewing
- Next, I shared a link for a Google document with the word list
- Last, I provided ideas for articulation practice that require NO flashcards or word lists. This is the most functional option and appropriate for children who are working on carry over.
Enjoy the FREE materials!!!
