Teaching the correct way to pronounce individual letter sounds

Hi guys. I hope someone can help me out. I remember seeing somewhere a chart of how to hold your mouth/lips to correctly pronounce each individual letter. School has just started and so many of my children who do already know their letter sounds are adding the UH to the sound--instead of saying /k/ for the "c" sound they are saying /kuh/, /puh/ for /p/, etc. I know I've seen this chart somewhere and I thought it would be good to pass on to parents. I've been searching the internet and cannot find anything. Thanks in advance!

I have never seen the chart you mention, though it would be a good idea. I teach mine right from the start that if they say, /duh/ for /d/ it means they are adding a 'u', that the correct way to say it is to "clip it short" and just say /d/....for myself, I always try to think of a word that doesn't have a 'u' after it and that helps me to "clip it short"....kinders are always amazed to learn this.

Thanks for bringing this up. I like jacque/Wa/K-1 way of explaining the u at the end of the sound.

adding the Uh sound

Thanks. I do correct them and explain that they are adding another letter sound. However, his is how they were taught with the uh sound, probably by parents. I just wanted to send home this chart so parents could understand how to help them at home. I know I've seen it somewhere. Maybe it was from our speech teacher. I'll ask at school today. If I find it I'll post it.

I read this posting yesterday, and this really helped me with today's lesson on teaching the B sound. However, even though I said /b/, they stil;l turned around and pronounced it /buh/. I guess I will keep correcting them!

Making Letter Sounds Correctly

Check out the SuperDuper.com website and search for "LipSync" flashards, they show the letter and it's sound plus the correct mouth movements. My kids have always loved them, good luck!

Just a thought.....You can buy cards at super duper publications taht are holographic called Lip Sync. They are pricey ($55) but a speech therapist I worked with used them and they are really cool. I will invest in them at some point just haven't had a good reason to justify it yet.
