I am trying to introduce poetry in my class, and I want to study different types of poetry throughout the year. I decided to start with alliteration, so the kids can express their creativity through playing with words. We discussed that alliteration occurs when you use words that start with the same letter. We studied different examples and wrote our own.
Winter bulletin boards make my heart happy, and I wanted to make a snowman craft with my students before winter break. Take a look...
I had all of the students write their winter alliteration before they started the snowman craft. Once they were finished writing, they got straight to crafting!
Here are some examples of alliteration from my 4th grade students:
Several of the alliterations cracked me up AND the snowman bulletin board turned out really cute!
