A is also for…Alliteration

The snake slithered slowly.This is when you have two or more words beginning with the same letter: The blue balloons burst with a bang! Sentences like this stand out in your writing and make your teacher think “Wow!”

If possible, make the letter you choose sound like the thing you are writing about. In the sentence “The snake slithered slowly through the grass” the repeated ‘s’ sounds like a snake hissing, so it will make your teacher think “Double Wow!” Be careful though. Only the interesting words count, so if I say “I’m going to Trinidad” the two ts don’t count because “to” isn’t an exciting word.
