Tongue Twister

What is the importance of the Tongue Twister?


Tongue twisters are a great way to practice and improve pronunciation and fluency. They can also help to improve accents by using alliteration, which is the repetition of one sound. They’re not just for kids, but are also used by actors, politicians, and public speakers who want to sound clear when speaking.

Fox in sock

This is a fun selection of rhyming tongue twisters. The rhymes provide a lovely rhythm and melody to the tongue twisters. And who doesn’t like Dr Seuss’ zany stories.

Further tongue twisters

Here’s the samples of the tongue twisters:

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter
But a bit of better butter will make my batter better
So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could, and chuck as much wood
As a woodchuck would if a woodchuck could chuck wood

She sells seashells by the seashore

How can a clam cram in a clean cream can?

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

I saw Susie sitting in a shoeshine shop
Susie works in a shoeshine shop. Where she shines she sits, and where she sits she shines

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy, was he?

Can you can a can as a canner can can a can?

I have got a date at a quarter to eight; I’ll see you at the gate, so don’t be late

You know New York, you need New York, you know you need unique New York

I saw a kitten eating chicken in the kitchen

If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose?

I thought I thought of thinking of thanking you

I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch
Near an ear, a nearer ear, a nearly eerie ear

Eddie edited it

Willie’s really weary

A big black bear sat on a big black rug

Tom threw Tim three thumbtacks

He threw three free throws

Nine nice night nurses nursing nicely

So, this is the sushi chef

Four fine fresh fish for you

Wayne went to wales to watch walruses

Six sticky skeletons (x3)

Which witch is which? (x3)

Snap crackle pop (x3)

Flash message (x3)

Red Buick, blue Buick (x3)

Red lorry, yellow lorry (x3)

Thin sticks, thick bricks (x3)

Ed had edited it. (x3)

We surely shall see the sun shine soon

Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches?

Fred fed Ted bread, and Ted fed Fred bread

I slit the sheet, the sheet I slit, and on the slitted sheet I sit

A skunk sat on a stump and thunk the stump stunk, but the stump thunk the skunk stunk

Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better

Of all the vids I’ve ever viewed, I’ve never viewed a vid as valued as Alex’s engVid vid

Fine motor skills

Tracking Motor Development

According to developmental experts, manual dexterity is directly tied to cognitive development. “It’s through her hands that your baby demonstrates the link between thought and action,” says Rhoda Erhardt, a pediatric occupational therapist in St. Paul who specializes in hand function. That’s why it’s important to track your child’s hand development and encourage her fine motor skills.

Between the ages of 12-18 months, your child will:

  • Point to pictures in books
  • Build a tower using 2 blocks
  • Use her hands together to hold a toy at the middle of her body
  • Scribble with a crayon
  • Point with his pointer finger
  • Hold her own cup and drink, with some spilling
  • Feed himself using a spoon, with some spilling
  • Remove his own socks
  • Put her hat on her head

Hogyan szerettessek meg egy mesét az angolul tanuló gyerekemmel? :)

Túlozzuk el az érzelmeket

Használjunk vicces hangot, hanglejtést

Mutassunk rá valami érdekesre és mondjuk el, ugye milyen érdekes, vicces? Hű milyen mérges, utánozzuk, játsszuk el.

Hagyjuk, hogy ő rámutasson valamire, ami tetszik neki és tegyük azt még érdekesebbé, viccesebbé.

Ezek közül pedig:

Figyeljek oda mi érdekli , és játszak rá erre, ismételjem ezeket.

Csak játékosan!!! 🙂

Yertle the Turtle,

Amit Abigél, csak úgy kér…”anya! Yertle the turtle king of the pondot olvasd!” és én már mondom is az elejét fejből amíg kinyitjuk.

A kocsi nálunk általában angolozós hely és idő, mivel viszonylag könnyű  ilyenkor zenét vagy bármi audiót lejátszani, úgy hogy szó szerint oda van kötözve a delikvens. 😉

Sajnos vagy nem…de most már kéri amit szeretne és ellenkezik határozottan, ha valamit nem szeretne, úgyhogy most már ha valamit akarok, meg kell szerettetni vele. (erről, majd máskor – Hogyan szerettessek meg egy mesét az angolul tanuló gyerekemmel?)

Még a beszéd előtti időszakban sok hosszabb mesét olvastam fel és néha a kocsiban is lejátszottam ez az egész mesét a spotify-on, szerencsére ellenkezés látszólag nem volt. Mindössze 8 perc az egész, így azért sokszor meg lehetett hallgatni legalább a feléig, mire ellenkezés volt.

Nem tudom, hogy részben ennek is volt köszönhető, hogy mire elővettem a könyvet ez egy nagy kedvencünk lett, annak ellenére, hogy 2 évesen még a Boribon hosszúságú meséknél tartunk. 

Amik segíthettek:

  • Már ismerős volt a szöveg, a kocsiban sokat hallgattuk, én már kívülről tudtam, így könnyebb volt olvasni
  • Rímek, ezek segítenek a tanulásban is, amellett, hogy szórakoztatóbbá teszi
  • Hangulat, eltúlzott érzelmek (“silence!!!!” “What’s that???!!!” – ezek szállóigévé váltak itthon 🙂 )
  • A könyvben találtunk egy pár vicces képet, ezeket mindig megnéztük és nevettünk rajta
  • Mivel sokat hallgattuk az autóban, és a narrátor fantasztikusan meséli, én is megtanultam hasonlóan intonálni, át kellet álljak 1-2 helyen az amerikai kiejtésre, a rímek miatt (lifted his hand – gave a command)
  • Pont jókor vettem elő – mostanában kedvenc könyveiből azt kéri, szinte ahogy befejezem, hogy újra olvassam, majd újra, újra…  

Itt található meg a történet audió formátumban

Trivia

A Jóbarátokat újranézve, most tűnt föl, hogy Ross fiának, Ben-nek, Yertle the Turtle-t olvassák, már a pocakban. 🙂
