Christmas Tongue Twisters

Added: 02 Dec 2014 Contributor: Scoilnet Resource type: Other

A collection of 16 Christmas inspired tongue twisters from the early childhood Ireland website featuring both simple and complex words.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Reading

Content objective:
This resource should enable a child to:

  • become an increasingly independent reader
  • continue to self-correct reading errors
  • identify unfamiliar words by reference to word parts, prefixes and suffixes

Suggestions for use: Divide the class into small groups, distributing a different tongue twister to each group. Allow children time to read it together in their groups and then in front of the class. Distribute a different tongue twister to each group and do same if time permits. Extend the activity by allowing children to create their own tongue twister.

Strand: Reading

Suggestions for use: Present the tongue twister examples on the IWB as a fun stimulus to an activity that requires children to formulate more complex examples and later challenging their peers to read them with precision.
