W Reading Paragraphs


Water World

William waited for his dad to wash the car. It was the last thing on their to-do list before they went to Water World. Water World was the biggest water park in Wyoming and they were going to go there for two days. William woke up extra early to help wash the car in hopes that he and his family would be able to leave that afternoon. He was wide awake at four in the morning; his dad, however, was not.

William ran into his parents' bedroom and said, "Get up! Get up! Let's go wash the car!"

"William it is 4 o'clock in the morning. We are not washing the car this early. You need to wait or else we will not go to Water World."

"But dad," said William.

"No buts. Why don't you go start making us some waffles and I'll be out in a minute," his dad said.

William walked out into the kitchen, still wearing his wolf pajamas. He grabbed the waffle mix, waffle maker, and some walnuts and prepared to make the waffles. He looked out the window at their family's dirty car parked in the driveway and wanted to go wash it himself.

He and his dad planned to wash the car over the weekend, but the water company had turned their water off to fix something.

He continued working on the waffles and wondered when his dad would get up and be ready to wash the car. Just then his dad raced out of the hall, unplugged the waffle maker, picked him up, and ran outside. 

"Let's get this baby washed," his dad said pointing to the car. The two of them started working and talking about all of the fun things they would do when they visited Water World.

Love to Drive

Be careful driving, called Wayne's mom. Wayne had just received his driver's license and could drive all by himself. Along with learning to drive, his parents told him to always drive in good weather, drive when he was completely awake, and to keep the windshield washed and clear. They joked with him about not driving on the sidewalk or sticking his head out of the window when driving.

Wayne wanted to drive everywhere. He didn't care if it was on the driveway, the highway, or the raceway. All he cared about was being behind the wheel.

"If I always had money in my wallet, I would drive all over the world," he thought. Wayne also wished the car had wings so when he came to water he needed to cross, he could simply fly over it.

He wanted to go on a trip right then, but remembered two things. He didn't have money in his wallet and he needed to exchange their new microwave at the store. It was okay though because he was driving, even if it was only to the store and back.

He rolled down the window and slowed down as he waved to the Waldens. The Waldens were close family friends. The two families watched out for each other since Wayne had been born.

"I am going to the store, would you like me to pick anything up for you while I am there?" he asked. 

"Yes, that would be great," said Mrs. Walden, "I need one kiwi, a bag of buffalo wings, and some bottled water."

"You got it. I'll be back in twenty minutes," he said. Wayne was happy that he could help and it made driving that much better. 




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