TONGUE TWISTERS HELP TEACH PHONICS!
Listening to the tongue twisters will help students develop phonemic awareness as they repeatedly hear the same beginning sound in close proximity. As they listen for this sound, their brains become pattern detectors. Hearing and repeating the tongue twisters will help students to hear the sounds in speech and then reproduce them. These oral-mode experiences build the foundation for a student’s ability to look at the tongue twisters and then recognize the same letters in print (phonics).
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES:
Annie asked Alex to draw an apple.
Billy watched the beaver build a dam with bunches of branches.
Celia’s class celebrated the new century at City Center in
Cassidy carries cauliflower, carrots, and corn in a colorful cart.
Logan likes limes, lettuce, lemons, and lots of licorice.
