Michelle over at Apples and ABC's put together this super cute lesson idea that pairs alliteration with an adorable snowman craft! After studying various examples of alliteration, have your kiddos try their hand at crafting their own winter poem about snowmen. For younger writers, you might brainstorm adjectives, verbs, etc. that start with "S". Older writers can work in pairs or individually. Here are some cute examples from Michelle's fourth graders;
After writing their poems, they can start crafting...
- Cut a snowman shape from white construction paper - a circle head and trapezoid body - and glue the snowman to a piece of bright blue card stock.
- Add an orange construction paper 'carrot' nose and cut a scarf from colored paper.
- The rest of the details can be added with a black permanent marker and white crayon. Draw the mouth and arms with the marker and background snowflakes with the white crayon.
Isn't the finished project super cute!? And they make an adorable bulletin board...
