Have you ever had lemon ice cream? Matt, his brother Mason, and their whole family loved it. But Matt's family is not a typical family. They are a family of monkeys. They live in the metro zoo in Maine. They always make a mess when they eat ice cream, but Mac the zookeeper gives it to each member of the family on their birthday.
Today was Matt's birthday and he couldn't wait to get his lemon ice cream. Last night, at bedtime, he couldn't sleep. All he could think about was the cold, yummy, lemon flavor in his mouth.
When Matt first saw Mac, he moved closer to him to see if he had the ice cream. When he saw Mac's face he got worried.
"Sorry Matt," said Mac, "I couldn't get any lemon ice cream for you. They were all out. I'll make it up to you though. Don't worry!"
Matt was sad and mad. He wanted to scream but he knew that wouldn't help anything. Just then Mac pulled a shiny object out of his pocket.
"Here ya go," said Mac, "Here is a dime."
This would make a great addition to his collection of shiny objects. Matt was happy with his birthday dime and smiled at Mac to say thank you.
Mel had the perfect idea for a new restaurant. He wanted to make and sell clam hamburgers. If everyone loved clams as much as he did, his restaurant would be a success.
And that would only be the start. He would make clam muffins, clam ice cream, and clam tomato pie. He told his friend, Michael, about the idea. Michael told him he should ask some people if they would eat those types of food.
Mel started talking to everyone he met. He talked to the plumber, the mailman, a woman at the store, some people on the swim team, family members, and a drummer in the park.
He asked all of them if they would pay money for a delicious clam hamburger. All of them said, "No."
Mel couldn't believe it.
"Doesn't everyone love clams as much as me?" he thought.
Later that day Mel talked to his mom. She told him not to give up on his dream and that the right idea would come to him. Mel thanked his mom and followed her advice.
The next day he had more ideas and started making plans to work on them.
Mindy wanted to travel more. She watched a movie about someone who traveled the world and that is what she was going to do.
She told her family and left home with her camera, comb, a map, and some other belongings. There were so many things she wanted to do and see.
She wanted to see a flamingo, a moose, masks from other countries, a camel, and a tomato the size of a watermelon. She wanted to climb the highest mountain, swim in the ocean, and see the bathroom in a king's palace. She would have so many stories to tell.
When she got to the bus station and was ready to buy a ticket, she realized...she didn't have any money. "They didn't show that in the movie," she thought as she walked home, "I'm sure I can solve this problem."
This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "M" 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 "M" 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 "M" 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.
