Alliteration happens when words that start with the same sound are used close together in a phrase or sentence. The sound is usually a consonant and the words don’t have to always be right next to one another.
One of the fun features of alliteration is when it becomes a tongue twister.
Here are some examples:
• Come and clean your closet.
• The big bad bear attacked all the little bunnies in the forest.
• Shut the shutter before it makes you shudder.
• Go and gather the green leaves in the lawn.
• Please put your pen away and play the piano.
