Astute Animals from A to Z – With Assonance and Alliteration
What makes an animal astute that allows them to adapt to their environment? First of all, what does astute even mean?
It’s easy as ABC....all the way through the letter Z! That’s where assonance and alliteration come into play and make learning about animals in an entertaining way. Assonance: the repetition of vowel sounds but not consonants in words (as "red hen") for poetic effect Alliteration: the repetition of a consonant sound at the beginning of two or more neighboring words Did I tell you there would be end rhyme too???
About Jaclyn Howell (Ft. Myers, Florida Author)
Jaclyn Howell always found it easier to express her thoughts and feelings through writing. Writing creatively includes an array of emotions that allows her to portray characters that are not only conflicted, but are relatable with an underlying theme. She has taught third and fourth grade for 14 years. She has always taught her students to have a conflict that wasn't solved on the same sheet of paper as when the conflict was first mentioned, a catchy climax where the story come together, and most importantly: an obvious underlying theme.
