Uncle Taco loved to go biking every weekend. He liked to bike up and down mountains, around lakes, and through tunnels and caves. He liked to bike when it was hot and when it was cold.
One day he wanted to go on a bike ride, but couldn't find his bike. He looked and looked, but could not find it.
On his way to work the next day, he was puzzling about where his bike would be. As he was walking he noticed a carrot-colored pumpkin in someone’s garden.
"That's it!" he exclaimed. He ran home as fast as his little biking legs could carry him.
When he got home, he ran to the shed behind his house. After moving the rake, his backpack, and his colorful kite, he found his bike - right next to a carrot-colored plastic pumpkin. He had put his bike in the shed to remind himself that he needed to clean it out. And he spent the next weekend doing just that.
Every Tuesday I go to Candle Park. I listen to music and read my book of the week.
Last week I took my breakfast to the park with me. A taco, some bacon, and a milkshake...my favorite. As I ate my breakfast, a cop with a notebook came by.
"Did you see a cat, a donkey, or a duck run by here?" he asked.
"No sir, I didn't?" I said.
"I am a detective, and I am trying to solve the stolen cookbook case," he said, "If you see anything weird on this sidewalk please call me."
"I will," I said. When he left, I thought of a great book title for his case. I would call it "The Great Cookbook Catastrophe."
Katie is careful with her candy. She loves it. She doesn't like cookies, crackers, or cupcakes - just candy. She likes her candy so much, she puts a lock on her candy box whenever she goes to sleep. She wears the key around her neck.
All of that changed after Katie got a sick stomach from eating too much candy. Now she eats healthy food like carrots, corn, and turkey. She hopes she won't get sick like that again.
This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "K" 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 "K" 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 "K" error because he/she continues to say it incorrectly.
We know life is busy, but if you're reading this you're probably someone who cares about helping their loved one as much as you can.
Practice 5-10 minutes whenever you can, but try to do it on a consistent basis (daily).
Please, please, please use this list to practice.
It will be a great benefit to you and your loved one's progress.
