Bathtime is so much fun with bubbles and froth. Have you got your plug feet on and your plunger ready to go because Toby Tap is ready to “tap” dance and sing for you about how he makes his favourite speech sound “t”. It is the sound he makes when he drip water from his tap nose onto the floor. You see he has a leaking washer, so if you listen very quietly you can hear the “t-t-t” sound pitter pattering on the bathroom tiles.
He teaches you to…
Try it -it’s so easy
Put your tongue behind your teeth and make it flap
Turn your voice right off
Trap a little bubble of air…
… and that’s how you do the Toby Tap rap!
Watch out – because Toby Tap loves to tippetty Tap the toilet seat and we all know that can get a little slippery now and then. Listen to his song to hear what happens.
Remember the “t” sound is made quietly as the voice is turned off unlike “d” for Dudley Drum where the voice is turned on.
You can trace the capital letter T and the lowercase letter “t”.
