Early Reader Phonics: L and R Story

Use this story to practice L and R spellings. Some people confuse L and R sounds. L is usually pronounced with the tongue touching the roof of the mouth, but it is possible to pronounce it as a last letter with only a slight constriction of the throat. With the Amercan R sound, the tip of the tongue does not touch.
