This activity was designed for speech students who are working on articulation. Once students reach the sentence level, they can participate in this creative and fun art and writing activity. Students write their very own tongue twisters with words that contain their sound. Then, they draw and color a picture to go with it. Next, they cut and paste the drawing on their tongue twister page and add it to the speech-language pathologist's "book". The SLP will then compile many tongue twisters with many different sounds to use for future practice and enjoyment. Parents and students love referring to the book that they created. This activity helps students take on more ownership of their speech sounds rather than simply repeating boring sentences over and over. The most common misarticulated sounds are included in this activity, including: /k/, /g/, /l/, /r/, /s/, "th", "sh", "ch", and "j".
