  • hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech we have a lot of words today so I'm not

  • going to get into definitions we're going to jump right into the lesson our

  • words are shower sour sore and sure alright so for all of

  • these words here they're going to start with the S sound and to do this the tip

  • of your tongue is pointed towards the bottom of your mouth or it's behind the

  • top front teeth and that air is going to keep moving this is different than the

  • SH sound which is two letters that equal one sound and to say this sound your

  • lips are going to be puckered Shh your tongue is not going to be touching your

  • teeth that's going to be behind your top front teeth so the difference is my lips

  • are a little more pulled back and Shh for the SH again two letters one sound

  • now for the vowels this actually gets very confusing because of the spelling

  • we are going to think of shower and sour as two beats and two syllables I did

  • break out the vowels for you just so that you could see the difference here

  • so for shower what we're going to do is we're going to move to that ow

  • vowel and you're gonna open ow and then pucker for that then we're gonna add the

  • er and to do that ow er you see your mouth is going to open

  • pucker and then your lips are gonna have to pull back into that square tense shape

  • for that er vowel for this vowel we are not touching our teeth with our tongue

  • at all for the R you can either point that tip down or flip it back so we have

  • two beats shall were shower shower shower and then for sour we're just

  • going to start with the s sour sour sour now for sore and soar you

  • are going to end with that or vowel sore and to do this you are going to

  • move your lips to a pucker and then pull them back and do square tense shape for

  • that er so let's give them all a try shower shower shower sour sour sour

  • sore sore sore soar soar soar so yes these two words are pronounced exactly

  • the same you might be asking what about the word show and for that we're just

  • going to have that long o and then what about shore and to do that we are just

  • going to start with that SH sound so we have show shower

  • sour sore soar shore so give it a try I know people are going to notice the

  • difference if you found this helpful we always love a like a share and
