P Reading Paragraphs


Cooking Catastrophe

The entire room was dripping with syrup. Patty had just wanted pancakes for breakfast, but nothing had gone right.

First, she accidentally put pepper instead of sugar in the pancake batter. Next, she cooked the pancakes in a pot instead of a pan. Then, she spilled pancake batter all over her pants. Finally, she put the syrup in the microwave for so long it exploded.

"I am a poor cook," she thought. She grabbed a mop, some soap, paper towels, and dustpan and began to clean and sweep everything up.

"Maybe I would have better luck with pie," she thought, mopping the floor.

Parker's Inventions

Parker made the coolest invention. It was called "Pizza in Your Pocket." It was a plastic container shaped like a piece of pizza.

People could take a warm or cold piece of pizza, put it in their pocket, and take it with them anywhere. He designed a special trap door that held napkins too, just in case the pizza got messy.

He wanted to make more "Pocket" products that would let people take food with them in their pocket.

He had ideas for "Pie in Your Pocket," "Pickle in Your Pocket," "Peaches and Pears in your Pocket," and "Popcorn in Your Pocket." He really wanted to make "Soup in Your Pocket," but that idea was going to be a little trickier.

He had the "Pizza in Your Pocket" product in many stores and shops. He was happy that people liked it and hoped they wouldn't stop buying them.

Penny the Puppeteer

Whenever people threw a birthday party and wanted a puppet show, they would call Penny. Penny was the best puppeteer in the town. She had more puppets than pepperoni on a pizza.

She always had the funniest names and parts for her puppets too. One puppet was named Teepee. Teepee was a cleaner, except he only cleaned with toothpaste. Another puppet's name was Pepper. Pepper was lazy and he would only wear clothes that were made of tape.

I thought Pepper was the funniest puppet because he always got stuck on things from his tape clothes. Yep, you never knew exactly what kind of puppet show to expect when Penny came to your party.

But today Penny was sad. We passed her in the park and asked her what was wrong. "I can't find Pepper," she said, "I've looked for him everywhere. When I got home I opened my puppet box and I couldn't find him."

"We will help you find him," my friend and I said. We called up some other people and started searching for Pepper. 




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