Alliteration is derived from Latin’s “Latira”. It simply means “letters of alphabet”. It is a literary device in which a few words, beginning with the same consonant sound, occur on the same line.
What better way to ensure simple literary devices are digested for Common Core Standards than by seasonal poetry? Worksheets don't seem to fit the bill unless we allow students a hands-on approach to ensure the component won't be forgotten.
This six-page worksheet includes the meaning of alliteration with several examples so that student's can see this poetic device in action. Also included are word charts so that student's can pick beginning consonant sounds that fit their theme. There is ample space for a first and second draft with questions that help students shape the poetry effectively.
This worksheet produces a five-line Thanksgiving alliteration poem. Great poetry writers can write two stanzas with five lines in each for their poetry publication.
