Hiding Turtle Sound - Reframe The R Sound

Sale price Free

Product Details

The R sound can be challenging and cause frustration. One way to approach the sound is by calling it something else completely. Don’t say R! This approach reframes the activity. Instead of that dreaded R, they can work on the “hiding turtle sound” during which they’ll pull their tongue back just like a turtle pulls it’s head into the shell. Then, they’ll make their tongue strong like a ninja turtle and say the turtle sound. Spoiler alert: The turtle sound is the R sound! But when you approach it as a fresh new sound, it can reduce existing frustration and help them produce it correctly.

I am using the Hiding Turtle as my new start to teaching /r/ and using it as a reminder of the /r/ sound production. It is a great visual for all of my students!
