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.

How To Say S

/S/ is a very difficult sound to say for some children. I will be writing a tutorial shortly with some easy tips. Stay tuned! In the mean time, read below for a brief introduction:

  • The tongue tip is behind teeth on the alveolar ridge or "bumpy spot"
  • The jaw or teeth are together - I cue with "teeth together"
  • Lips are slightly smiling

Articulation Games for S

The S sound is a later developing sound, usually mastered by age 8. 

  1. See - Say "see" as you spot things out the window, i.e., I "see" a dog
  2. Seven - Say "seven" during a game of crazy eights
  3. Sorry - Say "sorry" while playing the board game, Sorry
  4. Said - While retelling a story, make sure all productions of "said" are correct
  5. Glasses - Say "glasses" while you clean the lenses on glasses
  6. Icing - Say "icing" while you decorate cookies or cake
  7. Outside - Say "outside" while you toss balls outside through a window or door
  8. Horse - Say "horse" as you draw and color horses
  9. Face  - Say "face" while you paint faces or draw silly faces
  10. Grass - Say "grass" as you pick blades of grass

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

If you have any concerns, please contact a local speech language pathologist for a consultation.
