A Lesson In Alliteration

We began our school days this week. It's going to be a fun year! The kids are a bit older and the activities we're able to do are going to be challenging and full of learning adventures.
The boys learned about alliteration and wrote their own poem/verse using alliteration. The exercise was full of silliness and laughs and they were both very proud of their finished work.

Our oldest, 9 years old, wrote:
Batman buzzed black bug's back beneath buggy's bath
Batman beat black bug
Batman's bride batted bunnicula beneath Batman's batcave
It was a bunny battle

Our Middle son, 6 years old, wrote:
Green Goblin got goat girl during getaway
God gulped!
God gave goat girl the greatest guarantee
Goat girl gave goblin gum.

A great book for illustration of Alliteration is The B Book.
