How to teach the Letter R to Preschoolers & Kindergarteners
The sound that R makes can be challenging for some kids to pronounce. But with practice and regular exposure to R words, your students will be making headway in no time.
The basic R sound is /r/ (sometimes taught as /rah/) as in rust, run, and rain. Then, there is the /er/ sound that is used in the er, ir, ur letter combinations.
For preschool, simply focus on getting your kids to identify the letter R. Then have them practice finding letter R within words and saying the ‘r’ sound out loud.
