This is a figurative language unit to teach kids all about Alliteration! There are 32 individual task Cards, a poster (or anchor chart), a tracking/recoding sheet and answer sheets.
Understanding Alliteration is a huge step to improving reading comprehension and writing.
The poster has images and a simple explanation of Alliteration.
The tasks are also supported with pictures, examples and offer opportunities for students to write, identify and understand the use of alliteration.
Once a student understands and becomes familiar with figurative language, he/she will be able to include examples in writing tasks successfully and confidently. This knowledge also improves comprehension, making students aware that literal meanings aren't always right.
Although there are 32 task cards, you don't need students to complete all, I find they understand quickly and go on an "alliteration hunt" themselves. This seems to be one of the easiest figurative tools for students to understand and remember
This is a great unit for ESL students and adults, teaching the usage ideas..
