Perfect Plump Pumpkin Alliterations

Our first published piece on the iPads is complete. Students created, wrote and then published an alliteration. Alliterations are sentences that have the same sound repeated at the beginning of many words.  First, we used pictionaries to help brainstorm words the start with the beginning sound in our names. We unscrambled funny alliterations on the Smartboard to help us understand that our alliterations must make sense! Students then wrote a sentence to making their own alliterations. After our sentences were complete, students wrote them on sentences strips and made an adorable pumpkin to go along with it.  
Wait, we weren't done yet. Next, we used the iPads and illustrated our pictures using one of our favorite apps educreations. Students even independently typed their sentences, picked their color, size and placement. As a class we recorded ourselves fluently reading our sentences. Make sure to watch our final published piece above.
