Tongue Twisters are a great way to introduce alliteration, as well as sentence structure and even help develop comprehension skills--all by using good old tongue twisters. When they are also scrambled sentences these tongue twisters are even more challenging!
Good lesson for either ELA or SPEECH. This has a variety of alliterative sounds, so there is not any one targeted phoneme.
Scrambled sentences that include tongue twisters add the skill of practice sentencing sentence structure, syntax and grammar, too.
Quick lesson--ready to print! Easy to administer! Ready to go!
The tongue twisters/ scrambled sentences are best for students in:
- Grades 3 and 4
- Grade 2: mid-year and end of the year (not the beginning of the year)
Kids practice word order and have fun with alliteration at the same time. When they are arranged in an order that makes sense, so that they are untangled, they will form ten super silly, tangled tongue twisters.
Students will play with the words to see how repetitive consonants create a particular tone or rhythm, forming a sentence which can often be silly.
The object of the lesson is to unscramble the sentences, or in this case, untangle ten tacky tongue twisters. Kids learn syntax and grammar as they rewrite the words in complete sentences. This activity also is a way to check reading comprehension, too--even if the sentences sound a little silly. Of course, that's the whole point!
This resource addresses different skills: for speech practice, fluency, and writing sentences, for kids who call out words but do not read for meaning, for kids who need to just slow down and practice reading without being careless.
Very suitable for homework, literacy center, paired activity, or independent work! And there's always those fast finishers that need to be challenged! Or, save this file for your substitute plans.
As students practice the fun of alliteration, they will also practice grammar, syntax and basic writing conventions such as capitalization and punctuation. They will be practice fluency, and comprehension as well!
