How to say R's and S's

"Mom, I weally, weally, want to wun and wun with my fwiends" - I am pretty sure this is what I sounded like growing up! R's were my downfall.

A few little ones have trouble saying "r" and "s" - here are two little ideas that could help them...

If they can't say "r" then tell them to smile while they say it - it puts the mouth in the right position! (Try it while you read this - it really works!)

If they can't say "s" its probably because they have a gap - so remind them to make their teeth touch when they say "s" - perfect!

A lot of kids end up in speech therapy - but their are simply things you can help them do at home! They just need help - and a lot of practice!
