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 S

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 7.

  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 or contact us!
