Tell children that you will read the tongue twister to them and that they should clap their hands if they hear the letter A sound at the beginning of a word. Read the tongue twister to children emphasizing the sound of the letter A.

Ask children to identify the words that begin with the sound of the letter A. Underline the letters.

Encourage children to read or say the tongue twister together with you. Practice reading until children can recite the tongue twister together.
