Aspect 5 - Alliteration
What is it?
Recognising and saying words which begin with the same sounds.
E.g. Silly Soup, Fabulous Phonics!
Activity idea - 'Playing I-spy:'
A variation on the tradition game of 'I-spy.' Rather than say what the initial sound is, instead say, 'I-spy with my little eye a lovely large (lion)'
You will have to give examples of this first and I would suggest this is not the first activity you use to encourage or teach alliteration.
Activity idea: 'Magic bag alternative'
The magic bag game is great for rhyme as well as alliteration. Select objects for the bag which all begin with the same sound such as:
Mouse, man, mug, muffin, milk, etc.
Don't forget the song`:
'Magic bag, Magic bag, what's inside the magic bag?'
