Introduce alliteration through some fun poems or tongue twisters, then challenge students to create their own fun alliterations. In this challenge the more words you use, the more points you score.
At the two or three word level I allow my students to use adjective noun phrases. Each of these phrases earns 1 point.
big blue balloons
At the four word level and beyond the words must form a complete and sensible sentence. The sentences can contain words that do not begin with the same letter, but these words do not count in the score. The following sentence earns 2 points.
The eagle and the egret eat eels.
Students in my classroom work on this challenge during their independent work or free time for several days. They are required to reach at least 50 points, but love the challenge of getting much more!
I discourage my students from using well known tongue twister because their own creative inventiveness is so much more fun!
This product contains an alliteration poster and 2 choices for the Alliteration Alphabet Challenge booklet. The 4 page set has 8 -9 letters per page, while the 6 page set has 5 (or 6) letters per page. On the larger set students have more room to write or to illustrate their sentences.
