Some children have difficulties when articulating the sound j, being this one distorted, substituted or omitted. On this occasion, we want to give you some proposals for games with the aim that they serve to automate the correct point of articulation that this phoneme requires.
It is important that the activities are playful and do not lead the child to frustration. For this, we recommend that you carry them out at a time when you are not tired and that you, parents, are the first to show your motivation and interest. You know well that if your attitude is animated and you show that you enjoy the games, you will more easily achieve that your son also has fun.
8 children's games for the acquisition of the letter 'J'
These exercises will help to consolidate the articulation point, so it would be good to perform them in front of a mirror and counting at all times with adult supervision. Here we present several tasks, all with an attractive title so that this encourages children to participate.
1. Parrot: We will ask the child to become a funny parrot that repeats everything we say. We start by syllables (ha, hee, joe and the combination of these: haha, jeji, joju, ...), then we will go to the words (soap, jar, Jesus, giraffe, jewel, June, ...) and finally , to the sentences ('Javier and Julia eat ham', for example). We recommend that you start with the phoneme j as the initial sound and, later, introduce it in middle or end positions (box, slit, bird, lame, clock, etc.). Traba 2. Tongue twisters:
an activity that will get you, sure, big laughs. 'I have a drawer guy who makes boxes, boxes and boxes, and when pulling the cords out boxes, boxes and drawers', for example. Sure you can think of many other tongue twisters. 3. Storytelling:
you can write the simple story yourself and, at the time of writing, replace the words with j by drawings. In this way, it will be the adult who reads, but upon arriving at the images, the child must name them. You will see that the kids love this way of reading a story together. 4. Talkative ball:
by turns and at the time we throw a ball, we will elaborate lists of words. 'We're going to say all the words that come to mind that start with ja'. Busca 5. We look for couples: It will consist in playing the classic memory in which you have to uncover cards until you find the pairs of images, corresponding these with drawings that contain the phoneme that interests us. To complete the activity, when a couple is found, we will build a sentence with the word in question.
6. Guess riddle: we will say simple riddles for the child to discover the answer, which will contain the letter j. Eg: 'Two children each one with their window; they see it and they tell everything without saying a word '(the eyes). De 7. From goose to goose and shot because it touches me:
a board is made in the manner of a goose composed of drawings with the sound j and with the help of a die, the players advance until they reach the goal. Each time we fall into a box, the corresponding word is said and, if we wish, we can also elaborate a phrase that includes it. El 8. The smartest book: we read definitions from a dictionary so that the child can guess the word to which that definition is associated. These are just some ideas that can help you but the greatest ally with your children will be, as always, the imagination. For that reason I am sure that you come up with many more proposals with which you will spend lots of fun, in which you will learn almost without realizing it.
