Hi everyone, please please please, has anyone got any great suggestions on a text using alliteration. Ive just had a great week using each peach pear plum, and a week on rhyme has really instilled rhyme with the chn.

 

Be great to hear from you

Just found this game not sure if its what your looking for but it sounds great!! -

 

Follow these steps to play the “I am going on a trip” game:

Have one child start by saying (or perhaps singing) that they are going on a trip to a particular place. They will take with them some object that starts with the same letter as the place.

Example: I am going to Paris and I am taking a poodle.

 

 

Have the other children take turns adding to the list of objects being taken by thinking of something else that starts with that letter.

Example: I am going to Paris and I am taking a poodle and a pen.

 

 

Continue the game until someone is unable to think of a word or makes a mistake.

Results: That child then drops out of the game.

 

Continue until only one child is left after everyone else has dropped out.

Results: That child is the winner.

 

 

You could adapt the ending to avoid upset maybe? but i think a bit of competition is good!!

Ooh just thought you could make up a character ie Marmite the monkey...the children could write shopping lists, letters to marmite etc etc ...loads of actvities could stem from the game!!

Pass the Jam Jim has a couple of bits with alliteration in it, as well as all the rhyme, so you could use it to compare the two. I love that book!

Lots of rhymes have alliteration and of course tongue twisters such as Betty Botter and She sells sea shells. I find it fun working with the children on making up an alliterative sentence using their name. It can be a bit hard for some names though.
