What educators are saying

I love this resource! Vocalic-r is so tricky and this resource helped to encourage correct tongue placement. Great idea!
This was a HUGE help with my students who were struggling with /r/. I had tried so many other ways to elicit /r/, but this activity is what made it click!

This bundle includes:-Vocalic R Elicitation Webs: designed to help facilitate production of vocalic R with those students who already have initial/

This no-prep R coarticulation activity is the perfect tool to help students develop vocalic R after they have already established prevocalic / initial R. With these webs, you will use coarticulation to build on a child's strengths with prevocalic R / initial R, and use this to produce vocalic R.

Full instructions are included in the product, but the general idea is to have them say a vocalic R word, immediately followed by a prevocalic R word, then to slowly fade out the production of the prevocalic R.

I find this coarticulation technique to be very effective and am typically able to fade out the facilitating word very quickly.

This set of webs includes a different web for each vocalic R sound (ar, or, er, ire, ear, air).


  • Each of the 6 vocalic R sounds in color
  • Each of the 6 vocalic R sounds in b&w for easy printing
  • The same 6 webs in color and black and white without a typed middle word so you can add your own
  • A blank version so that students can write in their own words and / or take home for homework.
  • Digital Boom Cardversion perfect for distance learning and teletherapy.

Full instructions for the technique and how to use the webs are included.

This product has been updated to include a digital version hosted on Boom Cards™.

You do NOT need to use the digital version to take full advantage of this product - it is simply a BONUS included to make this friendly for distance learning and/or teletherapy.

  • "Sooooo good for getting a stronger production of vocalic R. I used this for elicitation in the beginning, then warm up and also gave as home work. Easy to use digitally but will also work great to print out. GREAT resource!"
  • "Definitely one of my favorite /r/ resources! Effective!"
  • "I had a student that was just making no progress until I used this tool! Thanks so much!"
  • "This way of teaching r is so easy and successful! The webs make home practice for parents so easy!"
