How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could, and chuck
as much wood
As a woodchuck would if a woodchuck could chuck wood.


How fast can you say it without making a mistake?

Watch the video to see if you can beat Mrs Wileman!
Why not make a chart to keep track of your best times for each week's tongue twister?


Did you know?

Woodchucks  are  North American mammals with heavy bodies and short legs.  Also called groundhogs, they are a type of rodent known as marmots (which are closely related to squirrels).

According to experts (e.g. from National Geographic), the name woodchuck doesn't have anything to do with wood!
