If your child is tackling tongue twisters as part of his speech therapy, here are some simple and fun ways you can encourage his tongue twister abilities:
- To improve his articulation, select tongue twisters featuring phonemes that are particularly difficult for your child, talk to his speech therapist for specific suggestions.
- If confidence is low, try selecting tongue twisters featuring phonemes your child is particularly good at – or you’re particularly bad at! He’ll have a good laugh at you as you struggle with a tricky tongue twister!
- Make a game of tongue twisters by printing out a selection of tongue twisters. Cut them into individual strips, put the strips in a basket, have each player draw one, and award points based on how few repetitions are needed to master it.
- You can increase tongue twister speed by adding a stopwatch to the game and making the player who can recite the twister correctly in the shortest time the winner of each round.
