Alliteration bonus slide :

What is alliteration? Alliteration is the repetition of the initial consonant sound. In a sentence there should be at least a couple repetitions in a row. It also adds more detail and makes stories more fun. Why do you like it? I like alliteration because I really like tongue twisters and they are always funny. Alliteration bonus slide
