Review of how to form "m": To form the "m" sound, place your lips together so that no air escapes through your mouth. Keep your lips together as you say the sound. The "m" is a voiced sound, so you will hear your voice when you say it. It is also a member of the group of consonants called the "nasal sounds" because it goes through the nose when saying it.

Practice the following paragraph. I’m always late for everything, it seems. At least, that’s what my friend Jim often tells me. To be honest, my mom has been telling me the same thing my entire life. The problem is that I don’t like to hurry in whatever I do, so I take a little too long completing tasks. Fromtime to time, this can be a problem at work, so I am going to take some measures to work harder. Hopefully, things will improve for me over the next month.
