A follow-up activity to Voice-Warm-Up, using tongue twisters to warm up the articulators and focus on enunciation of consonants. Articulators shape the breath and voice.
Explain to students that one of the foundations of speech is using clarity and respecting the vowels and consonants. Point out that it is dangerously easy to cut off the ends of words. Introduce one
easy tongue twister, and model how to sigh/speak it while clearly enunciating each consonant, and finishing each word
Continue activity using hand out of Tongue Twisters. Suggest that students now elongate their vowels while they continue to finish
their consonants (notice how this slows down speech without having to say “slow down”).
