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 SH

  • Say "sh" while placing the middle of the tongue to the top of your mouth 
  • Take a deep breath and blow air
  • Lips should be rounded like a "fish"
