April is poetry month, but we are getting a head start on figurative language. I taught alliteration last week, which some kids got right away:
Kid 1: The kitten karate kicked the Kool Aid man in the kitchen.
Kid 2: Monsters make meatloaf on Mondays.
Kid 3: My sister was surprised since she never saw a singing shark.
Kid 4: I threw a pizza in my brother's face.
Like I said, some kids struggled.
Here is one of my favorite examples. By a favorite student. Teachers have favorites. Just in case you were wondering.
A stranger stepped on a sandwich. Someone slurped it up.
