Lesson Plan

Alliteration All Around

Discover alliteration found in picture books by Pamela Duncan Edwards. Then, dive into a read aloud of Alligators All Around by Maurice Sendak. This practice sets the stage for budding poets to create their own acrostic poem, write an alliteration alphabet or number book, and have fun with tongue twisters.
