Abstract: The articulation organs are announced as mature physiological functions and communication of the articulated organs is approved according to the child's age development. If these organs work well then speaking exercises are also good. However, approval of the function of these organs is not maximal, it will also be agreed on the skills of a child in his speech. The focus of this research is about learning to talk to children aged 4 s.d. 6 years directed at the child's skills in reciting consonant sounds by referring to the development table of the sound production classification of A.
