As a speech therapist, the number one consonant sound my students were working on was the r sound!  I was constantly in need of r words for speech therapy.

I’ve gone ahead and created word lists with over 1,211 words making your articulation therapy easier this school year!

Correct Position

In the English language, the r sound is one of the most difficult sounds as well as one of the last sounds to develop. There are two different ways language therapists can teach tongue placement for r remediation. 

First, let’s review the two different variations of tongue movements for producing the r sound:

  • Retroflexed R
  • Bunched R

Both ways are very similar and vary in mid-tongue and tongue tip placements:

  • Teeth: The /r/ sound is made by having a slight gap between the teeth.
  • Lips: Lips should be in a neutral position and not rounded. (A rounded lip shape might lead to a /w/ in place of an /r/ sound, such as “wed” for the word “red”.
  • Sides of the Tongue: Be sure to place the sides of the tongue against the upper side of your teeth to allow for the passage of air to go down the center of the tongue.
  • Tongue Placement:
    • Retroflexed R: Have the mid-tongue somewhat tense but not bunched up. Then place the tip of the tongue pointing up just past the alveolar ridge.
    • Bunched R: Have the mid-tongue bunched up near the roof of the mouth. Then place the tip of the tongue pointing down or straight.
  • Air: Then blow a skinny stream of air over the center of your tongue (you do not want the air to come out the sides of the tongue).
  • Voice: The r sound is also a voiced sound so your voice box or vocal cords should vibrate. You can tell that their voice is turned on by touching your voice box on your neck and feeling it vibrate.

Types of R Sounds

  • Prevocalic R Sounds – is when the r sound comes before a vowel sound, such as an initial r word “red”. 
  • Vocalic R Sounds – is when the r sound comes after a vowel sound, such as: or, ar, er, ear, ire, air.

Target Words – List of Functional Words

Here’s an r word list for you to use in therapy or at home practice to work on your student or child’s new skill.

  • For Example: run, rest, ride, rake, root, parade, tarp, harp, worm, farm, soccer, wire, weather, faster, baker

See full list of words, phrases, and sentences below.

Simply scroll to the bottom of this post and grab your free copy of a list of specific words!

Word Positions: R Words Speech Therapy 

Initial Position of Words

The initial position of the r sound is at the beginning of a word. For example, “rock” or “race”.

Medial Position of Words

Some words have the r sound in the medial position of a word, such as “scared”, “tired”, and “fork”.

Final Positions of Words

The final positions of words are when the target sound is at the end of a word. For example, “tiger” or “star”.


Initial R Words at Word Level

Some ways to practice include having your child or student say each initial /r/ word one by one as they go through a list. 

Using a dot marker can also be a fun way to practice having your child put a dot under each initial r sound. 

In addition, I’ve compiled an easy-to-download one page overview of initial r sounds below. Simply scroll down to the bottom of this post and download your free copy.

Sentence Level: R Words Speech Therapy

The next step after working at the word and phrase level is to work on the r sound at the sentence level.

For example, you could give your child or student a list of sentences to read aloud while they work on their r sound. 

Another idea would be to give your child or student pictures with their r sound in them and then have them create a sentence about those pictures.

Below is a list of sentences to use with your child or students.
