Alliteration helps readers focus on the sounds of words. Alliteration provides rhythm and movement in text and contributes to fluency.
- Look for words that have the same beginning or ending sound
- Repeat these sounds in other words
- Put these words together in a phrase or sentence
Note: The easiest way to practice alliteration is to use the same beginning sounds. For example, "Johnny joined a jumping gym."
