We are working on alliteration in poetry.  What is alliteration?  It is a sentence where every word starts with the same letter.  Here are some of ours we made up in class…

Ali ate an apple again and again.

Bailey’s brother bragged because he bought a book before Bailey.

Dad is down in the dome. -written by Xzander, too hard to write with his name

Michael made mummies for Mummy World.

Lela loves little lions that are lost.

Jose is jumping rope on a jeep with juice.

Rylee remembered to run from roadrunners.

A.J. ate an apple at an alley and ate an almond.

Brandon baked barbeque beef with his brother.

 Can you write one?  They are not as easy as they look.
