Examples 1. Pretty Polly picked pears for preserves. 2. A pack of pesky pixies. 3. Sally sells seashells by the sea shore. Find the alliteration: Harry helped hungry hippos.
2. Assonance Assonance is: •The repetition of VOWEL sounds. •Usually found in the middle of words. Kateatethe whole cake. The long “A” sound is being repeated.
3. Consonance Consonance is: The repetition of CONSONANT sounds. Ben lent Ted a pencil. The “eh” sound is being repeated. **The sound is repeated, NOT the** letter!
