  • Hey everyone it's jennifer from Tarle speech with  your two for Tuesday. These are homophones - they  

  • are pronounced exactly the same way, they just  have different meanings and different spellings.

  • So our words today are pole and that is a rod  

  • or either end of locations like the north and  the south pole and then poll a record of a vote.

  • So to say these words correctly  we're going to start with that p  

  • sound - put your lips together and  let them open up, air puffs out.

  • Next we're going to move to that long o sound  - to do that your mouth is going to open  

  • in a wide oval shape, tip of your tongue  is low, back of the tongue is pulled up.  

  • o; and then we're going to move to a pucker. As  you pucker your tongue is going to move along as  

  • you close your mouth and it'll end in the middle  of your mouth. There it's not touching the teeth.

  • Then we're going to end with an l and to do this  you're going to touch the tip of your tongue  

  • to the back of your top front teeth.

  • poll poll poll

  • I am going to give you one little extra tip here  

  • some of my students really have trouble  with l at the end of the word, especially  

  • when an o sound is right before it, this  is oftentimes because the lips remained  

  • puckered - you do not want to have puckered  lips for that l sound it's oolll not it's llll

  • You can see my lips are pulled back  a bit so again to do that it'll be ol

  • poll poll poll

  • And now for a sentence: The neighborhood  poll asked everyone to vote on the color  

  • for the flagpoles.

  • Give it a try i know people are going to notice  the difference. If you found this helpful please  

  • share us with your friends and give uslike thanks everyone have a great week!
