R 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:

  1. First, there is a word list for quick viewing
  2. Next, you sign up and receive ALL THE WORD LISTS in one Folder in your Google Drive.
  3. 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!!!

Google Drive Word List

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Google Drive. I can access my word lists from any device; laptop, desktop, phone, Ipad.....anything! I no longer have to remember which app is on which device to access all my files and materials.

Also, I can access my word lists WITHOUT the internet. There are always those times were there is no WiFi, I'm low on data, bad reception, etc... and I NEED my word lists. 

I decided to put all the word lists in one folder for easy access. All you have to do is make a copy of the files and they are yours to use and tweak as needed.

Just provide your email and your word lists for ALL SOUNDS will be delivered to your inbox. 


  • If you need help saving your word list to your Google Drive, click here: Save Google Document
  • If you want more information on how to use all the great stuff Google Drive or Google documents offers, click hereGoogle Help 
  • If you LOVE Google Drive as much as I do, check out our Speech Therapy Documentation Page. It has been a time saver for my work in schools as well as private practice.

Articulation Games for R

The R sound is a later developing sound, usually mastered by age 8. R is also one of the hardest sounds to master in ANY language!

Take turns with your child saying the desired words. It is important to practice hearing as well as saying  the words.

  1. Write - Say "write" as you take turns drawing on a piece of paper
  2. Race - Say "race" as you and your child run across the yard
  3. Ready - Say "ready" before you start your race
  4. Read - Say "read" as your child reads a sentence in a book
  5. Fork - Say "fork" during meals
  6. Shirt - Say "shirt" as your child helps you with the laundry
  7. Sorry - Say "sorry" while playing the board game, Sorry
  8. Car - While talking about your favorite car, say "car"
  9. Hair - Say "hair" while your child comb her hair
  10. Wear - Say "I'm wearing" while describing what clothes you are wearing
