I have a lovely and delightful class.
Today we practiced alliteration.
The backstory is that the other day, DH saw SP throwing stuff and said, "Don't toss toys at Tucky! even if it does rhyme."
I wheeled around, eyes blazing and demanded, "It WHAT?"
"Toss toys at Tucky. it rhymes." DH asserted absently.
"It does NOT rhyme. It's alliteration. I may be permissive about some things but do NOT teach our daughter inaccurate linguistic terms! Alliteration!" I huffed.
So I got to thinking about alliteration and language and vocabulary and books like Dr. Seuss' ABC that utilize alliteration to create rhythm in the text. I developed a minilesson on it and a worksheet. Today we did it and my oh my did we have a wonderful time!
Kids produced original sentences like:
"The lollipop laughed when the lamb sat in its lap"
"I like little lambs."
"Lou lights a lamp."
"Lila licks a lollipop and likes lemons."
We switched to the letter "A" because my leader's name began with "A". They made up things such as:
"Abel and Anna are acting like apes."
"Alice and Annabel ate apples and alligators every April."
"In August an animal ate an apple."
We had a blast. All the way to PE we said things like "Line up by the lightswitch and listen." and giggled over them. A kiddo said "I just cannot quit doing alliterations! Alliterations are amazing hahahha I did it again!!!!"
Now, some pics from recent SP shenanigans to add to the Friday happiness:
Asleep in her crib, straight out of the car and still in her jacket!
