Christmas Alliterations       


Alliterations are phrases and sentences that start with the same consonant sound. They are often used to write tongue twisters.  Some authors use them to make their writing more interesting.  Read the example below and write some of your own.  If you write a complete sentence you can add a word like "and", "in" , "on", etc. to help with understanding.

Examples:  Shiny stars sparkle on silver sleighs.
                 Santa sings silly songs.

Write some of your own.  When you finish read them aloud.  Are any of them tongue twisters?
