  • hello everyone it's jennifer from tarle speech  with your mini christmas series we have two words  

  • today that are homophones again we have slay  which means to kill um or to amuse or impress  

  • and sleigh which is a sled for  passengers pulled by horses or  

  • reindeer so let's take a look  at these words we have sleigh  

  • and slay so to say these words correctly  we only have to focus on three sounds today

  • so we're going to start with that s sound to do  this the tip of your tongue is either pointed down  

  • or right behind the top front teeth that is  not touching and the air is going to continue  

  • to move out of your mouth next  touch the tip of your tongue to  

  • the back of your top front teeth for that l sound

  • you can see i'm keeping my lips in about the  same position as i do this doing that will help  

  • you avoid adding an extra vowel between those two  sounds if you are a spanish speaker and some other  

  • speakers from different other language backgrounds  do this be sure to not add an extra sound before  

  • the s it is not eslay it's just slay and then  we're going to end with that long a we're going  

  • to do that by opening the mouth wide and then  moving a smile and that will help your tongue  

  • shift from the bottom of the mouth nice to the top  and nice and flat so let's put that all together  

  • lay slay slay slay slay slay and now forsentence santa will slay and impress in his new  

  • shiny sleigh and i hope that he comes to visit you  and brings you everything that you're wishing for
