Since we are celebrating baby Jesus's birthday today our words today are Jesus Christ and that is the central figure of christianity; and Christmas the celebration of Jesus's birth. So show us those words Claire. Okay so we have Jesus. Let's start with that. So to say Jesus we are going to start with that j sound j. And to do this you're going to touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth and then pull it back quickly for that j j j sound. Next move to that long e tongue is high and flat smile and hold that long e je. Next we're going to move to the z sound yes the z spelled with an s; but we're going to pronounce a z here. And to do that the tip of your tongue is going to be pointed slightly down or just behind the top front teeth. It is not touching. Your voice box is on and moving. Then we're going to move to that short uh. Just relaxed mouth and then end with an s. Again tip of the tongue is down or behind the top front teeth it is not touching. Let's put it all together: jesus jesus jesus jesus jesus jesus And now for the next two words can you hold this up to the side maybe over here. Let's see how we're gonna do that? Okay perfect! Okay this gets confusing because the word Christ is pronounced with a long I and Christmas is pronounced with a short i and no t. That t is silent. So to say Christ and Christmas we're going to start with that kr and to do that tip of your tongue is down back of your tongue is pulled high up for that k. Keep your tongue there. Square tense lips and then say that R. For the long i open mouth moves to a smile. For the short i relaxed mouth mouth is just slightly open. Tip of your tongue will just be peeking out below your top teeth. Then we're going to move to the s for both of those tip of the tongue is either down or behind the top front teeth. Sorry about that. And the air is going to be moving so we have cry and chris. Now for the s t here you know how to say the s, then what you're going to do is just touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth for that t. Christ Christ Christ. Try that second part Christ Christ one more time Christ. And then for Christmas, after you say that s, new syllable and then you're just going to end with mus. Lips together for that m, open relaxed mouth for that uh, and then you know the drill for the s. Let's put it all together chris mus chris muss christmas christmas christmas christmas christmas christmas And let's try those words one more time Jesus Christ Christmas Try them all Jesus Christ Christmas. And we have another special guest star today. Who do we have Claire? Show them. We brought baby Jesus from our manger because we are celebrating Jesus's birthday. And there he is!
