Tongue Twisters

Students love tongue twisters.

These are my favourite :

  1. We surely shall see the sun shine soon.

    2.  A big black bug bit a big black bear, made the big black bear bleed blood.

     3.  Betty bought some butter but the butter Betty bought was bitter,

     so Betty bought some better butter and the better butter Betty bought

     was better than the bitter butter Betty bought before.

I hope you’ve enjoyed them !

Task in class : 

Now, they have to forge one about their ownn environment:


First, you can start with :We surely shall see the sun shine soon.

  Then you ask them to change 2 words : sun / shine.    Give them an example; begin with the same letter : scrabble score,    seashore, seaside    seaman, safe and sound

   the scorching sun on the sea. 

Tool : your memory, the book or a dictionary,

Method : 

  •  Find a list of one syllable words beginning by the same letter or having the same sound.

  •  Connect them together to make a sensible sentence at the preterite.

ex: Roy/ Riley, right,ran, read, rich, rime, repeat,row, …

Roy was right when he ran to read the right line on the right with its rich rime  and repeat it to the row.

ex n°2 : Sandy and Andy walked on a sandy shore in the sun without sunscreen, so they got a suntan then a severe sunburn in Saint-Anne.  

You see ! it’s very easy and it’s fun !

As a homework, you can ask the pupils to bring a new one next time.

They won’t have to read their notes, they’ll just have to speak to the class.
