What’s Your Favorite Tongue Twister?

I practice saying tongue twisters every day, mainly because I do a lot of talking in my line of work.

According to Teach Them Diligently, “Tongue twisters have been proven to clarify the pronunciation of words. Tongue twisters also stretch and strengthen the muscles which you use to speak. Tongue twisters show you what words and sounds you have trouble with pronouncing.”

Reading tongue twisters every day helps you enunciate better plus it’s lots of fun to do with your kids and grandkids. While you’re having fun, they’re improving their speaking skills. It’s a win-win!

They might not make sense, or they may sound silly but they’ll add some fun and giggles to your willy, dilly day!

I’ve added a few of my favorites below and invite you (and your kiddos) to start a daily practice!

1.Medium tongue twisters:

  • I saw Suzie sitting in a shoeshine shop.
  • Can you can a can as a canner can can a can?
  • Tom threw Tim three thumbtacks.
  • Red Leather. Yellow Leather --- repeat three times.

2.Medium tongue twisters:

  • Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t very Fuzzy, was he?
  • You know New York, you need New York, you know you need unique New York.
  • If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?

3.Classic tongue twisters:

  • If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, how many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick?
  • How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
  • She sells seashells down by the seashore.
  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.

4.Difficult tongue twisters:

  • The sixth sick sheik had six sick sheep.
  • Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches? I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.
  • The big blue bug bit the big black bear and the big black bear bled blue blood.

5.My favorite:

  • Betty Botter had some butter, “but,” she said, “this butter’s bitter. If I bake this bitter butter, it would make my batter bitter. But a bit of better butter – that would make my batter better.” So, she bought a bit of butter, better than her bitter butter, and she baked in in her batter, and the batter was not bitter. So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

If you Google “Tongue Twister,” you’ll find lots of additional options to keep your tongue tied!!!

And while you’re exercising your mouth muscles, get out their and move this summer, go swimming, hiking, or do like I do and walk the mall. Read a good book, go on a family picnic, or try a new recipe.

Volunteer where it matters, check in on an elderly neighbor, or bake cookies for your co-workers. Keeping busy is the best way to stay happy. So, let’s make our summer busy and happy and full of fun!

We’re back on the road so we hope to see you soon!

Love and blessings!
