Hi Samus,

Here is a Child Development Guide: Five to Six Years, that includes some information about speech milestones...

http://www.education.com/reference/article/Ref_Child_Guide_Five_Six/

And here is an interactive Speech and Language Development Milestones checklist that may provide some insights for you as well:
http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/staticresources/health/voice/fiveyears.asp

That checklist is also hyperlinked in this article on Education.com:

Speech and Language Developmental Milestones

I'm including below some additional resources you may also find helpful.

hello.
by the age of 5.. children normally develop a lot of their speech sounds... except their 'r', 's' and other such sounds difficult to pronounce. Also, blends with these may not be as clear.
