Description Toungue Twister

Tongue Twisters are a fun and silly way to enhance your pronunciation skills and build your confidence with public speaking.

Steps:

1. Print several tongue twisters from the internet or photocopy a few from a book (Dr.Seuss's Fox in Sox is full of them)  

2. With a group, get everyone to choose a tongue twister and practice it independently.

3. Have the participants recite the tongue twister in front of the group. If there are adults participating one of them should go first to model the activity.

4. Then get each person to teach their tongue twister to the group.

5. Once everyone has recited and taught their twister to the group vote on your favorite tongue twister.

    Tongue Twisters are great for helping younger kids engage and become more outspoken. For middle aged children it's a great introduction to public speaking and for older ages, it's perfect to ease tension and break the ice. I find it's also a great idea to have kids come up with their own (be mindful, for older ages it can get quite inappropriate).
