Some parents find it very difficult to teach their children to pronounce certain sounds correctly. One of these complex sounds is "Ш". Some kids replace it with "S" or "Z", others completely exclude it from the words. To teach a child to pronounce the sound "Ш", it is necessary to perform special articulatory exercises every day.
Articulation exercises include exercises for the lower jaw, exercises for the lips and exercises for the tongue. They must be performed every day for several minutes in front of the mirror. Articulating gymnastics can be performed with rhythmic music or counting, as well as supplementing classes with claps.
In order to teach a child to pronounce the sound "Ш", it is necessary to perform daily exercises with him aimed at the development of the lower jaw.
Ask your baby to open his mouth wide and not close it for 30 seconds. This exercise must be repeated 10-15 times. Chewing movements with closed lips and light tapping of teeth with open lips perfectly develop the lower jaw. "Fence" - stretch your lips in a smile and place the upper jaw on the lower one, wait 15-20 seconds and relax. Ask your baby to do the same.
In order for the child to pronounce the sound "Ш" correctly, his lips must be very mobile and well developed. Therefore, the complex of articulatory gymnastics also includes exercises for the lips.
"Smile" is an exercise, the principle of which is to forcefully stretch open lips with clenched teeth. "Proboscis" - pulling the lips forward. The alternation of these two exercises is considered very effective for the development of children's lips.
For the correct pronunciation of the sound "Ш", good mobility of the baby's uvula is also necessary. There are many interesting games for developing this very mobility.
The game for the development of speech "Chatterbox" - movement of the tongue forward and backward. "Hours" - movement of the tongue to the right and to the left. "Swing" - movement of the tongue up and down. Perform each exercise for 30 seconds. In addition, it is very useful to perform circular movements with the tongue, lightly bite its tip, and also click it, depicting a horse.
