Google Drive Word List

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Google Drive. I can access my word lists from any device; laptop, desktop, or phone. 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. 

If you want a copy, fill out the form below. I put all the word lists in one folder.  Once you receive your email with the materials, make a copy of the files and they are yours to use and tweak as needed.

How to Say D

To say the sound /d/, put the tip of your tongue behind your teeth. This spot is called the alveolar ridge or the "bumpy" spot.

  • Cue your child to put their tongue behind their teeth. 
  • The concept of "behind" can be tricky to grasp. If so, try to put peanut butter or yogurt on the "bumpy spot" to have them feel where the tongue should go.

Articulation Games for D

D 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.

  1. Duck - Say "duck" as you duck your head, put a rubber duck in water and say "duck"
  2. Dance - Play a version of " Dance Simon Says," say "dance" to start dancing and then say stop 
  3. Dog - Hide a dog in a bucket and say "dog" every time you find it
  4. Candy - Put candy in a jar and say "candy" for every turn
  5. Windy - Say "windy" as you make wind with a piece of paper or fan
  6. Spider - Sing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" slowly
  7. Shadow - Outside, make shadows or jump in each other's shadow as you say "shadow"
  8. Slide - Make a slide out of a book or cardboard box and have toys slide down as you say "slide"
  9. Hide - Say "hide" as you hide under a blanket
  10. Sand - Say "sand" while digging in a sandbox
