Color it Out – When it’s your turn and you arrive at a pair of words that interests you, spend some time with “help me say my turn” — listen to it five times, each time closing your eyes to notice the vowel sound flooding. Do not look at the words while this is happening; just listen and use your Open Hand. On the fifth repetition, say the phrase in chorus with the recording (still without looking at the words). Then play your turn like normal and see how it feels!
Sort it Out! – At the end of a round, click “Review words” to see the words you played. Use the Open Hand and flood each list.
Video – Watch 1 video a day, and really try to become aware of that sound or technique.
