I have to share a book I just discovered. It is by Hellen Lester, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger. “Hooway for Wodney Wat” is a book about a rat, named Rodney, who cannot pronounce his R sounds. It bothers him, but he deals with it and in the end his speech difference ends up solving a sticky problem for all the kids in his school!

The book promotes acceptance of differences, and is the only book I’ve found about kids who have trouble with the R sound. R is one of the most common sounds that my students have in error, so I am very excited to find a book about it!

There is a follow-up book, Wodney Wat’s Wobot, which is also fun. Check it out!

This video is covering the basics of R – the types of R, how to elicit R, and how to put R with single vowels. I hope it is helpful!

You can download the R Star exercise that I talk about in the last portion of the video here.

*note: when I say “Here’s a photo of your tongue” I obviously mean “picture of your tongue”. I didn’t notice that until after recording, but I’m not going back to redo the whole video because of it. 😛
