Just jump in joyfully!

It's fun to have kids start with their own names. Next have them find verbs and adjectives that start with the same letter as their first name. Show them how to put them together into poems.

I did this just a couple weeks ago. We're doing an author study on Audrey Wood, so I read them the book "Silly Sally" Now, the book doesn't really have any alliterations in it besides the short phrase "Silly Sally" but I showed them how the first letters of those words had the same beginning sound and we made it into a longer sentence. "Silly Sally Sung a Silly Song" and then we made up ones with our name. I told them they might try brainstorming words that started with the same letter as their name and look some more up in the dictionary because some had a hard time thinking of words that started with a particular letter.

I know another teacher that did it with the same thing, except with the book "Wemberly Worried" by Kevin Henkes

There's a great book called "Some Smug Slug". The author also wrote " Four Famished Foxes" and these books are PERFECT for teaching alliteration.

Here's an amazon.com link:
