Objectives: practice effective communication skills, identify and correct errors when repeating several tongue twisters, have fun with language as they write their own...
Materials Needed: copies of printed list of tongue twisters:
Sample Tongue Twisters:
Bill's feet feel beat
Dean's Meals means deals
Sherry hates hairy states
Rubber baby buggy bumper
Quick throats, thick quotes
Great gray gaping grape grates
Luther's sleuthing's useless truth
Silly sheep still asleep
Trains lack lain track
Gail's maid mailed jade
Where's Squire's spare wires?
Shriek, screak, squawk, and squeak
Twitching, walking witches talking
Willie's really weary
Mister, whither sister's zither?
She sees seashells by the seashore.
Sixty silly sisters simply singing
Great glass globes gleam green
Frank's peers pranks feared
Their skis scare these
