Speech sounds can be practiced using simple calling card, however using games like this one will make for a great way for young children to practice the initial position sound in any speech session.
G Sound in Speech Therapy
The “g” sound is a voiced velar fricative. Also, the “g” sound is made by first pressing the back of the tongue against the velum, or soft palate, and then moving it forward to touch the upper teeth.
A g sound can be used at the beginning of a word to represent an action that will happen in the future. For example, “I’m going to go get gas.”

For each sound, there are three activities that can be done:
-Pretend that you’re a cat and say the sound as meow.
-Say the sound while pretending to brush your teeth or eat breakfast.
-Say the sound while pretending to count from 1 to 10.
Children can use the back of their tongue to practice pronouncing the g sound initial words.
Sometimes, kids just need a little more practice and doesn’t always mean that they have an articulation disorder. Sometimes, practising sound sin front of a mirror helps!

I always try to use picture cards for speech articulation, but games work just as well if not better.
