Teach G Sound

You are going to teach G to your child here. I will give quick tips on how to accomplish this and then practices at the syllable level. Your child will learn how to say G correctly in the beginning, middle, and end of syllables. If you are just starting your home practice for G, this is a very important first step

Teach G With A Mirror

We are going to teach your child the G sound using a mirror. This technique works well for most children. However, if your child is distracted by the mirror, remove it. You can follow each step simply by looking at each other.

G is not a visual sound which means that your child cannot easily see how to say it by looking at you. You must use more tactile and verbal cues to elicit a correct pronunciation.

How to do activity:

  1. Sit in front of a mirror with your child
  2. Look into the mirror and encourage your child to do the same
  3. Say G and explain how your tongue is in the back of your throat. You may need to touch your throat while saying G as direction words can be difficult to understand.
  4. Encourage your child to say G while touching their throat
  5. If your child is having a hard time grasping the concept "back of throat," open your mouth really wide as you say G so your child can see how your tongue bunches up in the back

  7. Say the syllable and have your child repeat
  8. Repeat this process with all syllables

That's it! Easy!
