My kids and I like to practice tongue twisters. They are a silly, fun distraction when we are out and about and make a good alternative to screen time when the kids get antsy waiting for a bus or an appointment. Lately I’ve been seeing lunch box note printables going through my Pinterest feed and I thought it might be fun for my kids to have a tongue twister to share with their friends in the cafeteria every day.
Attempting tongue twisters always, always make the kids laugh so they are a good ice breaker for that first scary week in the cafeteria. Plus, you may not realize how great tongue twisters are for a child’s literacy development. They not only help with pronunciation, but phonemic awareness. Just think of it as literacy at lunch!
On a whim I decided to make it a tongue twister lunch box note printable for the blog. I’m no graphic artist, so these are in a very simple format.
