Included in this pack:
*6 spinner pages-letters B, C, D, M, S, T, and a blank 'DIY' spinner
*a planning page that helps kids plan their sentence
*a page of adjectives that will help kids write their own sentences using alliteration
*2 different writing papers for publishing sentences with a place for illustrations
I am so excited about how well this alliteration activity worked with my kids and they absolutely LOVED it!
I decided to do this as a whole class activity, but it could definitely be used in a small group or at stations.
Here’s one way to get started in your classroom:
Give each child a ‘spinner’ page and paper clip.
Kids spin the paper clip to find a 'name', 'who', 'where', 'with what' and 'describing words'.
Kids write the words from the spinner in the correct boxes on the ‘sloppy copy’ planning sheet.
They then write a sentence using words from the boxes. Have them use describing words to make the sentences more interesting and colorful.
I checked the sentences on the sloppy copy and provided a final page for the published sentence.
The kids illustrated their sentences and then shared them with the class.
I have to say it was a HUGE hit with the kids. I heard "Can I do another one?" over and over again!
I know your kids are going to love making these sentences too!
