Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.

This summer we spent some time visiting family (and a couple of beaches) in Florida. It was nice to experience the difference in environment between the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. My son really enjoyed getting in the water to catch the waves, as well as exploring the shores for seashells. As I watched him, the famed tongue twister she sells seashells by the seashore came to mind. That gave me the idea to incorporate tongue twisters to some of my lessons as a fun language activity for this school year. Here are some of the ones I plan to use:

  • She sells seashells by the seashore
  • Greek grapes
  • Soldiers shoulders
  • Six sick sheep
  • She chews string cheese
  • I would if I could, If I couldn’t how could I?
  • Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
  • How much wood would a woodchuck chuck?
  • Night, night said the knight to the knight one night
  • Shelly shouldn’t shake salt shakers, should she?
  • A tutor who tooted a flute
  • We shall surely see the sun shine soon
  • Five fat frogs fly past fast
  • A skunk sat on a stump
  • Swan swam over the sea
  • Billy Button bought a buttered biscuit
  • Andy ran to the Andes from the Indies in his undies
  • He who laughs last, laughs last!
  • Which wristwatch is the Swiss wristwatch?
