    I didn't do this for poetry, but I used the students' names to start a lesson about alliteration/assonance. They had to come up with 2 sentences about themselves: I'm Racing Ron. I run 'round the racetrack at recess.

    We also did tongue twisters & read Dr. Seuss books like the ABC one: Ichabod is itchy....

    There is thie great book, "Super Hero ABC". Every page has a super hero for each letter of the alphabet and everything is alliteration. It's cool and kids love this book! My kids got to create their own super heros... I attempted having them do alliteration but writing the story was a difficult enough task - I didn't put pressure on them to make it alliteration.

    Oh Wow this is fun... Instead of having them write a story I could give them a coloring page or a print out of some kind of a super hero and have them name him and write a couple alliteration sentences about him.... Oh you guys are so great....

    A great read aloud alliteration book - "Dinorella". I LOVE the book anyway, but it is all alliterated with "D"s. It is always fun to read it with character voices as well! :)
