Alliteration with Lucky the Little Leprechaun!

Yesterday, my kiddos made these adorable leprechauns and wrote a sentence with alliteration about them. They turned out absolutely adorable and look great on the clothesline in our room. Check them out! We first started by making charts of nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs that begin with the letter "L". This was quite challenging but the kids had some great ideas.

Then, everyone made their own leprechaun, named him, and wrote a sentence about it. They had so much fun!

Some of their sentences included:

"Lucy the leprechaun likes to leap over lemons."

"Lori the loving leprechaun loves to lick lettuce."

"Leo the leprechaun likes to lick licorice."

"Lucky the little leprechaun lazily squeezes lemons."

"Lucy the leprechaun likes to lick lemons."

"Lilly the leprechaun loves to lock people in lockers."\
