Alliteration Rap by Justin Vaughn (With Vocals)
Henry stood on the sidewalk in downtown Honolulu holding a hula hoop. “It sure is hot.” Henry thought. Henry turned to his friend Hank and said, “Let’s go to the beach and cool off. We can get hot dogs there.” That’s when their adventure began.
Authors Use Alliteration
Authors use alliteration in stories and poems because it makes their writing sound interesting when it's read aloud.
Let's see how an author does it.
I do. We do. You do.
Read aloud a mentor text - Mini-lesson - Notice alliteration used by the author.
Model - This is how I could write like that.
Guided practice - What do you think?
Independent practice - Can you write like that?
NOW IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO WRITE!
We will visit about your book next time during writer's workshop.
Time for Revision
Authors always read what they wrote to decide if they can make it better. Making it better is revision.
Do you need to change anything in your book to make it better?
Editing Comes Next
Author's make sure that they have capital letters and punctuation done correctly. Editing is when we clean it up to be sure it looks right.
