Name game pronuniciation

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

You all know the Name Game... A chant made up based on a one or two syllable name... For example,

Chris Chris
bo bis
banana fana fo fis
me my mo mis Chris

It is really easy to target problem sounds by substituting them. For example /l/ /r/ would become

Chris Chris
ro ris
banana lana lo lis
le ry lo ris

Students get just as much of a kick out of hearing their name song as I did... You could even do a whole song with multiple choruses, famous names, and different sounds in each chorus...

Chris Loch,
Iwata, Japan
