Well, now that I know the tongue twister post was apparently helpful to MANY others I thought it would only make sense to share it here. The tongue twister assignment followed a week long focus on complete sentences. I use this powerpoint to first introduce the five rules to a simple sentences:
The rule is (of course) that it has to be a complete sentence! Each student wrote his/her own sentence and then got to type it out during computer lab. They even got to choose their own font. When the tongue twisters were printed I then used them to make a cute little display in the hallway, along with a sign challenging all teachers and students throughout the school to read each one three times fast. I can't tell you how many times I would come out of my room to find someone standing there trying to say a tongue twister...it's hilarious! So here's the video. Hope you enjoy and that perhaps you can use it to inspire your kiddos to write their own tongue twisters!
