Tongue Twisters -- A Drama Game

The first activity I usually do with my Drama Club students is call and response Tongue Twisters.  I tell them that actors must enunciate and project and practicing these short sayings does both.  I won't even let them work on accents until I can understand what they are saying in their normal voices from across the room.

I created an original set of Tongue Twisters that are available for free in my freelance curriculum stores:

To help students practice their accuracy, fluency, and expression, model reading one of the tongue twisters, slowly at first to practice accuracy.  Next, have students read in unison after you.  Then distribute the sheets to have students practice in duos and triads.  Students could "perform" their chosen tongue twister or lead the class with call and response.
