Lesson 1: The /p/ sound


For the /p/ sound, have your child press their lips together and then push them apart with a puff of air. Make sure your voice is turned off. When you touch your throat there will be no vibration. /p/ is a short explosive sound. Associate the /p/ sound with an action, object or animal that has some features of the sound (e.g. the ‘popping’ sound).


The video below can show you how to teach the /p/ sound.
