We made a class book for alliteration based on sentences or statements the children had come up with them selves eg.Jumping Jack juggles jellybeans.smiling Cynthia speaks spanish,Ruby races robots etc.THe children came up with the sentences then illustrated their page.

I have made up sentences then cut them apart and given one to small groups of kids saying there is something special about the cards that I have given you. Then I let the explore. It didn't take long for them to figure out the alliteration and sequence the words to make a sentence. I let them do several and then we discussed what they noticed.

You could then write a few together, then let them each choose a letter and write their own and then make and ABC book of alliterations

This isn't a how to teach lesson, but how to publish in a fun way.

Have them write their alliteration sentence on a tongue and glue it to a head. I usually have them select "alien" heads and the bulletin board is titled "alien alliteration".

Here's something. Go to PBSteacher.com
Click on the reading section and type in Alliteration.

It will come up with a few things. The best thing I just found was under the tab "offline activities". They had some fun ideas with the book Animalia by Graeme Base.

Good luck.

Some Alliteration Ideas

I teach 4th and 5th grade language arts. When we do alliteration we start off using "tongue twisters" such as "Peter Piper" and "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck..." Then we make our own class version. Everyone in class makes up their own alliteration name such as "Awesome Amanda" or "Talkative Tom" so that they get an idea of how to do it, and it is personalized. They usually like this activity.

Taught the song to 6th graders and they loved it....It is simple enough to use for 2nd grade....If you can remember the tune to "Green Acres"


Alliteration is the name
Repeating letter is the game
Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers
Alliteration (clap, clap)

Read Grahame Base's Animalia. Then have kids write their own alliteration.
