M Word Lists
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.

M is an earlier developing sound. Therefore, the games listed below are for younger children. Feel free to tweak them to meet the needs of your child. Take turns with your child saying the desired words. It is important to practice hearing as well as saying the sound.
- Mom - Say "mom" when you see a picture of mom in a book
- More - Say "more" all day long when your child wants more food, blocks, etc..

These games can be played at home or anywhere. Adapt any game your child is already playing to squeeze in some fun "M" practice.
How To Say M
Some quick tips on how to make an "M" sound...
- You make an"M" sound by putting your lips together.
- Make sure your child can see your lips as you practice the "M" sound at first. It is a very "visual," easy-to-see sound.
- You can also cue your child by saying "lips together."
If you have any concerns, I recommended you contact a local speech language pathologist for a consultation.
