90 cards to help with the R sound! These cards are designed to help students working on the production of the R sound at the word level. Each card features the target word, accompanying picture, and mouth images to illustrate how to say each sound in the word. Like the title says, these cards take you sound-by-sound through the word. Your students can work carefully through the cards as they focus on motor movements and placement of articulators.
Cards are included for prevocalic /r/, r-blends, and vocalic R (divided by context: ER, AR, IRE, EAR, AIR, and OR). The images feature exaggerated mouth illustrations for bunched R. Pairing these cards with verbal prompts to “make your tongue tight” or “keep your tongue high” may also be helpful.
A data sheet is also included for progress monitoring, which makes these cards even more awesome.
If you need MORE help with the R sound, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Check out our step-by-step workbook, I Can Say the R Sound. This workbook takes you from eliciting that first R through production in syllables, words, phrases, sentences, and oral reading. Packed with elicitation techniques and many practice opportunities, it is a must-have for every speech-language pathologist.

These cards are perfect for modeling mouth movements when saying words with R. The cards are also fun with pictures so its the modern articulation deck.
I have been so impressed with quality and usefulness of the products. I would recommend this website and products to anyone :)
I love this resource! I find the detailed visuals very helpful when working on R with my students. I especially love the sound by sound visuals.
My 4-year-old daughter was getting speech therapy for her /k/ and /g/ sounds but that changed when COVID hit. I stumbled upon Peachie Speechie while looking for good quality work to supplement her practice. As an English and Reading teacher, it was important to me to find quality, professional, material that was engaging as well as purposeful. My daughter loves the videos and the work that corresponds with them. Here she is with the /k/ tracker. She runs up to me every day and proudly says "kah, kah, kah! Can I color in my mouth?"
