Tongue breakers and rhymes for children
At around 5 years of age, many children develop a preference for tongue twisters and rhyming. At this age, children can express themselves well and feel safe in their main language, so they start to actively play with the language themselves. Even the much younger ones like rhymes. Just think of the numerous children’s books, songs and knee riders that we, as parents, grandmas, grandpas, aunts or babysitters, read from the beginning or sing and play with children. In contrast to the younger children, preschool children try to rhyme themselves or to invent funny sayings. They also discover the world of jokes and begin to recount or invent them themselves.
Rhyming is also a fun game on the go. My daughter (5 y.) And I take turns trying to do everything we see. B. street sign, house or red shoe etc. to find a suitable rhyming word.
But tongue twisters are also very popular at this age. Tongue breakers are about saying the saying or short sentence without getting a knot in the tongue. The difficult thing is not the individual words, but the stringing together of words with similar or similar sounds. Who of you does not remember well-known sayings like:
"Fisher’s Fritz is fishing fresh fishes. Fischers Fritz fishes fresh fish. ”Or“ Red cabbage remains red cabbage and wedding dress remains wedding dress. ”
