T Reading Paragraphs


Terry's Taco House

Growing up in Texas can be hot in the summertime. Our family likes to get milkshakes to cool off. Tonight our family is going to get Texas toast, tacos, and milkshake's at "Terry's Taco House".

My dad came home from work last night and said he was craving a taco from Terry's. It is the most terrific taco place in town.

Everyone will get a taco except for my sister Tia, she will probably get a hamburger. Don't get me wrong, Terry's makes good hamburgers, but their tacos taste much better in my opinion. Tia just isn't a big taco fan.

Most of the time she would rather find an exit than eat a taco. But when she wants a taco, she gets really excited about it. She is like my dad. Dad doesn't want to eat tacos very often. But when he does, move out of his way because he will run faster than a cheetah to get a taco.

When we go to Terry's tonight, I will find us a table by the window. Terry's restaurant sits right next to a busy street and I like to watch different things that happen while we eat our tacos. I've watched people change their car tires, drive with towels on top of their car, and find a turtle in the grass.

I always look forward to being together with my family and eating at Terry's. It is fun.

Teaching Dreams

When I get older I want to be a teacher. It has to be the coolest job in the world. The trouble is that I want to teach every subject. There are so many things to teach about and I don't think schools will let teachers teach about everything.

So far my list of things I want to teach about include: Jupiter and planets, writing fairy tales, growing potatoes and tomatoes, playing tennis, boat safety, and working in a hospital. Last week our class learned about alligators - this made me want to teach about animals. Then this week, I have learned about tools and building and that makes me want to teach about construction.

My mom also asked me if I would like to learn to play the guitar a few days ago.

"Of course I do. I want to learn everything so I can teach anything," I said. I tell my parents about how cool teaching is all the time. They won't tell me, but I think they get tired hearing about all of the different things I want to teach about.

They tell me I should definitely become a teacher if I love it so much. My plan is to teach high school classes in six different subject areas. I am starting to prepare now by learning as much as I can. I read a ton. I do a lot of interviewing too. Asking people what they do has taught me so much about things I can teach.

Teacher Trouble

We had my teacher over for dinner on Saturday night. My mom said it was because we needed to make her our friend. But it was quite the disaster. Not quite as frightening as a tornado, but pretty close.

I took her coat and hat at the door and timidly showed her into the dining room to meet my dad, Tom. He stood up so quickly that he knocked his calculator and notebook off his lap and onto the carpet. He shook her hand and said, "Well now aren't you as pretty as a parrot. I'm sure my son is as bad as two - no ten, tigers in your classroom." And at that, I started choking on the peanuts I had taken from my pocket and stuffed in my mouth so I wouldn't have to talk.

I ran to the bathroom as quick as a cheetah and spit the peanuts into the tub. I was trying to wash them down with water, but I was still choking. There were tears in my eyes and my tummy started to turn. I turned around and spit the rest of the peanuts into the toilet. I quickly used some toothpaste to brush up and a tissue to wipe my face. I returned to the dining room and took my seat. Then the rest of the disaster happened.

My mom served tortillas filled with turkey, potatoes, lettuce, and butter. My teacher ate them with her tongue half-way out. I don't think she liked them. And for dessert we had what my mom calls, fruit tacos - fruit in a hard tortilla shell topped with tangerine syrup and fried in butter. They were actually pretty good. But on the last bite, my teacher turned green, swayed a little and fell on the floor.

We called the hospital and they came and got her. I took her coat and hat and laid them on top of her as they wheeled her out on a stretcher. I did not want anything left behind to remember this awful night when we had my teacher over for dinner.




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