This activity is a fun way to teach rhythm, cadence and alliterations when writing. Based on the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas", this sing-along or read-along class book turns ordinary Thanksgiving foods into tasty and creative alliterative phrases (e.g. luscious lobsters, tasty turkeys, etc.). Two formats are provided: a primary lined fill-in-a- word version and an upper grade version for students to write their own alliterative phrases. This makes a wonderful cross-age cooperative writing project. Students illustrate their work. Bind into a class book and sing (or read) along!
