Christmas Tongue Twisters Lesson

Include a Definition of Alliteration and Tongue Twisters Are Educational and Fun

By

Everyone knows "She sells seashells on the sea shore." But tongue twisters are fun and educational any time of year.

Start your lesson with these Christmas Tongue Twisters. Remember to teach your students about the literary device called alliteration. Then let them loose to creative festive tongue twisters of their own.

Extend the lesson by asking your students to illustrate a tongue twister or two. Let them use a dictionary and/or thesaurus to kick their twisters up to the next level of complexity.
