More Tongue Twisters


As you asked me for more tongue twisters, I want to share with you these two which are very well-known. Hope you like them!
How fast can you say them? Try them with all the members in your family. Have fun!

Hi Miss Ale!

I know some different versions of those tounge twistes. One of my favourite all time ones is
'She sells sea shells by the seashore. The shells that she sells are sea shells I'm sure!' Its great fun to say, especially when your doing something like jumping jacks!

Hello Miss Ale,
This tongue twisters sound like an unknown language, don´t they?
The second seems easier to me than the first one.

Hello Miss Ale!
its quite difficult to pronounce well all the words but the one that I like most is like this:
"I SCREAM YOU SCREAM WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE-CREAM."
Its quite easy but I like it

Hello!
Thank you for the tongue twisters. I knew the one of Betty but the other one no. My sister tried to say them and she did it quite well. Now she is telling me what to but. To put that she is amazing.Jaja. I am quite a disaster. I remember that in fourth grade with Peter we had a page with tongue twisters and the one of Betty was there. I did it well buut know I can but I can't understand what I say. I looks like BBBBBBBBB!

It is quite difficult to say this tipe of tongue twisters out loud but it is a thing of practicing. The more you practise, the better you can recite the tongue twister!
There are some tongue twisters that are short but difficult, like...

The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick.

I realized that I can say without difficulty these 2 tongue twisters, and I also realized that they are quite alike...

How many cans can a cannibal nibble
if a cannibal can nibble cans?
As many cans as a cannibal can nibble

How many cans can a canner can, if a canner can can cans?

Here's another tongue twister for you:
A Tudor who tooted a flute
tried to tutor two tooters to toot.
Said the two to their tutor,
"Is it harder to toot
or to tutor two tooters to toot?"

You have a great blog. If you don't mind I am going to add it to our blogroll.

You also have some great ideas I want to link to so my 5th graders can give them a shot.

Check us out when you get a chance.

Hi Miss Ale,
I was one of the people who wanted that you post some more tongue twisters. The first one I could say it slow, and my mother couldn't even do it. The second one, instead, was bit easier and I could it faster, although she didn't do it so well, my mother could some parts.
Very good post.

Hello Miss Ale!
I have tried to say the tounge twisters, but I could not do the correctly. I ask one of my brothers, my mom and my dad to try to do them and the only one who could do it correctly was my dad in the 5th or 6th time I think. I still try to do the tounge twisters, I think that the second one is much easier than the first one. Is much more easier to say them once you already practice them a lot. I also know other tounge twister but they are in spanish. there are also difficult. I hope you still on blogging.

Hello Miss Ale,
I love tongue twisters, I did Betty Botter in 5th and I did it very well in my opinion. There are lots of tongue twisters one more dificult than the other. I did these ones very well, in the next post put even more difficult ones, please. I saw other comments and I loved the one of:
I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!.
Really funny and is the one I like most because, obiously, who in this world doesnt like ICE CREAM!.
I need to say a rule of tongue twisters:
All tongue twisters:
Rime
Have a lovely RITHIM
MIXING DIFICULT WORDS(only Mr.Peter can say)
With lots of DICCION, Mr.Peter always remainded us of that!.
Kisses and Misses for a Miss I know very well!
TONGUE TWISTERS!
