NG Reading Paragraphs


Ping Pong Champion

It had been a tough tournament, but Tang had made it to the final round of the ping pong championship in London, England. He taped each finger, had orange chewing gum, and was wearing his kangaroo socks for luck.

The final game was the best he ever played. Every swing of his paddle made a point. He was unstoppable!

He walked with a spring in his step to receive the ping pong champion trophy. He held his trophy and began to sing. He would remember everything about this moment.

It was raining outside, he was hungry, he was breathing deep from his lungs, and felt like doing the tango! He was now king of the ping pong world and nothing could ruin this moment. Except, if he got a bee sting. He was allergic to bee stings. As long as he stayed indoors, he wouldn't have to worry.

Busy Kyle

Kyle played in the school marching band. Tonight, the band was playing Jingle Bells in a nursing home for the holidays.

Next week, he would be sleeping in a snow cave at Singer Campground. He was going to have a busy holiday break.

Over the break he wanted to go bowling with his family, put all of his clothes on hangers, and practice driving. He had just received his driving permit and couldn't wait to start. He was nervous to drive on the ice.

He got angry when he saw others driving fast when the weather was bad. He wished he wouldn't have got his permit until the spring, but was glad he wouldn't have to wait that long. "Driving accidents happen in the spring too," he thought.

He started to get hungry. "Let's go to King Hot Dogs and get some dinner," he said. The marching band, Jingle Bells' singer, and Kyle finished their songs, hopped in their parent's van, and drove to the restaurant.




This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "NG" 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 "NG" 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 "NG" error because he/she continues to say it incorrectly.
