Figurative Language


The first thing we are going to do today is play the Alliteration Game.

Day 4- Assonance

You remember alliteration, right? Well, assonance is very similar to alliteration.  Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds in the middle of words.


It beats... as it sweeps... as it cleans!  (Hoover vaccuum slogan)  The "ee" sound is repeated.

The silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain....  Edgar Allen Poe
