Alliteration Celebration!!!

My kindergarten friends have been working super hard in Writer's Workshop! 
We just finished up our Alliteration unit. 

It was SO MUCH FUN!!!
 At the end of each writing unit I try to have a special celebration. 

For our alliteration celebration...

We read:



Each child brought an item (snack or small trinket) that started with the same sound as their name.
 (This idea came from this great blog post.)

 Kate brought Kisses and Kleenex! 
Frankie brought Fruit Roll-Ups!
Simon brought Star Fruit!
(...more in the Smilebox below)

We published a favorite alliteration to share with our friends. 

We chose letters and decorated our tables with pictures and words that began with that sound.

Each child read their alliteration for the audience. 
: )

We enjoyed several of their snacks at the party.

But had SO MANY things.... that each child got a HUGE bag of goodies to bring home! 

 They *loved* this, of course!
(rings, lizards, stickers, gummy bears....)

The party was an awesome success, thanks to you!

Kindergarten Friends,
I am SO, SO proud of all of you!
Keep up the awesome work. 
I am glad you {love} writer's workshop as much as I do!

  2. Mrs. Rider, I just found your blog, and can I just tell say: Amazing! The videos are spectacular. I'd really like to buy the song "If You're A Kid" by Harry Kindergarten. I tried to find it on iTunes but it wasn't there. Do you know where I can buy it?

    Also, I use so much music in my own classroom, I would like to play little clips on my blog but I'm not sure if it's ok - do you know?

    Also, if you're interested, I'm having a contest on my blog to give away a 100th Day unit from TPT. Come over and check it out, if you want.

  3. This looks like so much fun! Super cute ideas!

  4. Hi! I would like to hear more about your unit on alliteration. What mentor texts did you use? Where did the idea come from? Is this a part of your curriculum or a book that you are following? Just curious... I love the idea, but would need some help developing a unit like this.
    Thanks so much! Your blog is awesome!
