Word Lists for Articulation
It’s the beginning of the school year. I have a student teacher and a new assistant. I am running around like a head-less chicken wondering how to teach them the ropes while I put out fires.
Among the things I wanted to work on this year was better lists of words for my articulation students who can read, but just need the reptition of doing words over and over.
So I went to my best computer friend (google) and looked for “words articulation lists”.
And a gem was found.

And it’s free!
I’ve already printed out the /r/ lists and am excited to take advantage of this site. Not only does it divide the sounds by initial, medial, and final positions, it puts the words in phrases and sentences too! Great practice. Because consistent use of good sounds is all about practice, practice, practice. You’ve got to teach your muscles the new movement pattern to achieve long term success.
Great resource – thanks for sharing! My son can’t read, but he can attempt to repeat words that I say. I think I’ll just print some of these off and go down the list having him repeat the words after me.
Great resource! And good luck with all the new staff. 🙂
Where have you been all of my bloggy life? 😉 I’m into comic books (would be moreso if there was a comic book shop around my parts, alas) and speech therapist school is currently consuming my life. Thanks for the word list link…I’ll have to bookmark that for the inevitable artic. client I get. 🙂
I need to keep working on talking with my son. He’s 13 months and has maybe 10 words that he says clearly … and I suspect he’s saying a lot more words but I have no idea what he’s saying. I felt awful this week because a teacher at Mommy & Me class was able to recognize him saying, “more” and I had no clue what he was saying!
Ah, well. I must press on!
I saved this in my favorites! Thank you!
