J Reading Paragraphs


Jerry the Juggler

Jerry the giant liked to juggle and do magic. His favorite thing to juggle was jelly beans. This was hard to do with giant hands, but Jerry liked the challenge.

His favorite trick was to make his jacket disappear, and then re-appear, with a jar full of jam in it.

He had performed his juggling and magic show in strange places. One was at a sausage festival in Egypt. Another was at a college for pigeons.

He really wanted to perform on stage in his local village, but he was too afraid the village people would reject him.

My Favorite Jeans

I have written more than 500 pages in my journal. I write about everything - like the time I flew on a jet to Japan, or did the high jump in the Olympics. I have seen a giraffe in the African jungle. I have been to Egypt and eaten fudge on a magic carpet.

During all of this I wore my favorite jeans. My friends tell me to throw them in the garbage because of the germs they probably have on them. I am going to wash them while I drink some juice. It will get the germs out. My jeans will also be another page I can write about in my journal.

2 Wishes

A genie can grant you three wishes. They are magic.

A few days ago I got a package in the mail. My jaw dropped when I opened it and found a genie's lamp inside. I rubbed the lamp and out came the genie.

"That place is like a cage," he said. Then the genie said, "You have three wishes, but judge wisely."

"I wish I could play the banjo," I said. POOF! And it was done.

"I wish I could have sausage and juice every day for breakfast," I said. POOF! And it was done.

"For my last wish I want to fly on a jet like a secret agent." POOF! And it was done.

If a genie gave you three wishes, what would you wish for?




This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "J" sound.

We encourage you to use this list when practicing at home.

Doing home practice will help your child make much faster progress toward correct production.

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are only able to see students/clients 30-60 mins (or less) per week.

This is not enough time for your child to overcome an articulation disorder with the "J" sound. But with high caseloads...

...it's all SLPs can do.

There's only so much time in the day.

Every day that your child goes without practice it becomes more and more difficult to correct an "J" error because he/she continues to say it incorrectly.
