alliteration examples and tongue twistersFun with Alliteration Examples for Kids!

Updated with additional Alliteration Examples for Kids: Famous clichés and sayings, 1/27/13.

Spending time with the grandchildren sometimes gives grandparents cause to think quickly for ways to entertain them, especially in the car while stuck in traffic on the way to the beach on a summer weekend day. One way we grandparents pass the time and keep our two older grandchildren distracted is to teach them tongue twisters using special alliteration examples for kids. Longer tongue twisters are also known as alliteration poems or verses. (The following alliteration examples and tongue twisters may help with homework assignments, too. Please review these and then create your own – do your own homework!)

Alliteration Examples for Kids

Alliteration is the use of the same consonant sounds in words that are near each other. It is the sound, not the letter, that is important: therefore ‘candy’ and ‘Cindy’ do not alliterate, but ‘cool’ and ‘kids’ do.

A tongue twister is defined as a phrase or sentence that is hard to speak fast, usually because of alliteration or a sequence of nearly similar sounds.

On the educational side, it is a great exercise to help our kids learn phonetic alphabet awareness and develop concentration and memory skills. Alliteration examples for kids, including tongue twisters, poems and clichés, can help make learning to read and write an enjoyable time for grandparents and grandkids together.

Alliteration Examples for Kids in Nursery Rhymes

Betty Botter by Mother Goose

Betty Botter bought some butter,
but, she said, the butter’s bitter;
if I put it in my batter
it will make my batter bitter,
but a bit of better butter
will make my batter better.
So she bought a bit of butter
better than her bitter butter,
and she put it in her batter
and the batter was not bitter.
So ’twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter.

Three Grey Geese by Mother Goose

Three grey geese in a green field grazing,
Grey were the geese and green was the grazing.

Baker’s Reply to the Needle Salesman by Unknown

I need not your needles,
They’re needless to me,
For kneading of needles,
Were needless, you see;
But did my neat trousers
But need to be kneed,
I then should have need
Of your needles indeed.

Alliteration Examples for Kids: Fun Activities

A very funny activity you can do with your grandkids using one line tongue twisters is to create Alphabet Tongue Twisters. Alliteration examples for kids when used with the alphabet combined with phonetic sounds help in auditory processing and awareness.  A fun tongue twisters I can remember having fun with were She sells sea shells by the seashore, Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. Here is another fun tongue twister using alliteration: Happy hippos who hop happily have hippy hips (well, not a famous alphabet tongue twister, but I wanted to make one).

More examples of alliteration for kids using one line alphabet alliteration to make tongue twisters are:

A: An ape ate Ace’s acorn.
B: Baby Bobby bed bounced better by bedtime before Billy bounced.
C: Cory collected cola cans counting continuously.
D: Dan’s dad drastically dropped a dozen dipped donuts.

For the younger kids with a limited vocabulary, it is okay for them to make up words and to do it phonetically. Their examples of alliteration can turn out quite funny and have everyone laughing together. You can tell them to make silly alliteration tongue twisters to make you all laugh. After your grandchildren make up their tongue twisters using alliteration, have them challenge you to say them three or four times fast without stumbling, or read the longer tongue twister alliteration poems as fast as you can without making mistakes. When you recite the silly tongue twisters, be silly yourself and they’ll enjoy it even more! The sillier the better! Actually the best tongue twisters are the funny tongue twisters. Alliteration helps to do just that.

For older grandchildren, do it this way:

Players pick a letter…perhaps the initial of their name…and try to write or say the longest sentence in which every word starts with that letter. The sentence should make sense even if it is not sensible.

Another way to play the game in the car…Starting with the person behind the driver, have him call out a single letter. Immediately, the person to his right must make up a tongue twister sentence. All the words in the sentence must begin with the same letter. The person to his right, then must recite the alphabet tongue twister 3 times fast. Play until everyone has had a turn reciting a tongue twister.

Alliteration Examples for Kids: Famous Poems and Tongue Twisters

The alliteration examples are for older kids who may need to do some research to find alliteration examples:

Famous Poems

Robert Frost used alliteration in his famous poem, Nothing Gold Can Stay. If you’ve read the Outsiders, you may be familiar with this poem.  Can you find the examples of alliteration?

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Tongue Twisters

Well known tongue twisters are also alliteration examples for kids found in famous poems. See how many times it takes you to read these fast without making a mistake!

Tongue Twister #1

I’m not the pheasant plucker, I’m the pheasant plucker’s mate,
And I’m only plucking pheasants ’cause the pheasant plucker’s late.
I’m not the pheasant plucker, I’m the pheasant plucker’s son,
And I’m only plucking pheasants till the pheasant pluckers come.

Tongue Twister #2

A tutor who tooted the flute
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot
Said the two to the tutor
“Is it tougher to toot
Or to tutor two tooters to toot?”

Tongue Twister #3

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
How many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick?

Tongue Twister #4

A certain young fellow named Beebee
Wished to marry a lady named Phoebe
“But,” he said. “I must see
What the minister’s fee be
Before Phoebe be Phoebe Beebee”

Tongue Twister #5

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck would chuck wood?
A woodchuck would chuck all the wood he could chuck
If a woodchuck would chuck wood.

Tongue Twister #6

I thought a thought.
But the thought I thought wasn’t the thought I thought I thought.
If the thought I thought I thought had been the thought I thought, I wouldn’t have thought so much.

Tongue Twister #7

A skunk sat on a stump.
The stump thought the skunk stunk.
The skunk thought the stump stunk .
What stunk the skunk or the stump?

Tongue Twister #8

If one doctor doctors another doctor
Does the doctor who doctors the doctor
Doctor the doctor the way the doctor he is doctoring doctors?
Or does the doctor doctor the way
The doctor who doctors doctors?

The doctoring doctor doctors the doctor the way
The doctoring doctor wants to doctor the doctor.
Not the way the doctored doctor wants to be doctored.

Tongue Twister #9

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
Now See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw
Before Soar saw See,
Which made Soar sore.
Had Soar seen See’s saw
Before See sawed Soar’s seesaw,
See’s saw would not have sawed
Soar’s seesaw.
So See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
Just because See’s saw sawed
Soar’s seesaw!

Tongue Twister #10

I cannot bear to see a bear
Bear down upon a hare.
When bare of hair he strips the hare,
Right there I cry, “Forbear!”

Tongue Twister #11

If Freaky Fred Found Fifty Feet of Fruit
And Fed Forty Feet to his Friend Frank
How many Feet of Fruit did Freaky Fred Find?

Tongue Twister #12

Did Dick Pickens prick his pinkie
Pickling cheap cling peaches in an inch of Pinch
Or framing his famed French finch photos?

Tongue Twister #13

Dr. Johnson and Mr. Johnson,
After great consideration,
Came to the conclusion
That the Indian nation
Beyond the Indian Ocean
Is back in education
Because the chief occupation is cultivation.

Tongue Twister #14

A tree toad loved a she-toad
Who lived up in a tree.
He was a two-toed tree toad
But a three-toed toad was she.
The two-toed tree toad tried to win
The three-toed she-toad’s heart,
For the two-toed tree toad loved the ground
That the three-toed tree toad trod.
But the two-toed tree toad tried in vain.
He couldn’t please her whim.
From her tree toad bower
With her three-toed power
The she-toad vetoed him.

Tongue Twister #15

Silly Sally swiftly shooed seven silly sheep.
The seven silly sheep Silly Sally shooed
shilly-shallied south.
These sheep shouldn’t sleep in a shack;
Sheep should sleep in a shed.

Tongue Twister #16

You’ve no need to light a night-light
On a light night like tonight,
For a night-light’s light’s a slight light,
And tonight’s a night that’s light.
When a night’s light, like tonight’s light,
It is really not quite right
To light night-lights with their slight lights
On a light night like tonight.

Tongue Twister #17

Of all the felt I ever felt,
I never felt a piece of felt
Which felt as fine as that felt felt,
When first I felt that felt hat’s felt.

Tongue Twister #18

A flea and a fly in a flue
Said the fly “Oh what should we do”
Said the flea” Let us fly
Said the fly”Let us flee”
So they flew through a flaw in the flue

Tongue Twister #19

If a Hottentot taught
A Hottentot tot to talk
Ere the tot could totter,
Ought the Hottentot tot
Be taught to say ought or naught
Or what ought to be taught ‘er?

Tongue Twister #20

Ed Nott was shot and Sam Shott was not.
So it is better to be Shott than Nott.
Some say Nott was not shot.
But Shott says he shot Nott.
Either the shot Shott shot at Nott was not shot, or Nott was shot.
If the shot Shott shot shot Nott, Nott was shot.
But if the shot Shott shot shot Shott, the shot was Shott, not Nott.
However, the shot Shott shot shot not Shott – but Nott.
So, Ed Nott was shot and that’s hot! Is it not?

Dr. Seuss Poems Containing Alliteration for Kids

from Dr Seuss poem Fox in Socks

Luke’s duck likes lakes. Luke Luck licks lakes. Luke’s duck licks lakes. Duck takes licks in lakes Luke Luck likes. Luke Luck takes licks in lakes duck likes.

and from the same Dr. Seuss poem…

Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.
While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made these trees’ cheese freeze.
That’s what made these three free fleas sneeze.

NEW Alliteration Examples for Kids: Famous Cliches and Sayings

What is a cliché’? This can be difficult to explain to a child, but a simple explanation could be:

A saying that is used a lot and has lost its newness and the original meaning or comparison it was first used for. Some clichés are “I thank you from the bottom of my heart” and “It’s only a drop in the bucket.”

Clichés can be used for a fun activity when eating out or quiet time before a nap…or on a trip. You just  might not hear, “I’m hungry…when’s my food coming?” or “Are we there yet?”

First, discuss a simple cliché your child may have heard before, then go through the list of alliteration examples of clichés listed below. This can be really a lot of fun if you first guess the literal meaning, then the figurative meaning! I started to do this in place of “With my little eyes, I see something…”

  • baby blues
  • baby boomer
  • back breaker
  • bad blood
  • belle of the ball
  • best buddies
  • bite the bullet
  • blind as a bat
  • bounce back
  • by the book
  • cat cries
  • cut corners
  • cash cow
  • close call
  • cold as a cucumber
  • crack the code
  • cream of the crop
  • cuts to the core
  • dead as a doornail
  • do or die
  • fall head over heals
  • fan the flames
  • fickle finger of fate
  • fuss and feathers
  • green as grass
  • hale and hearty
  • hard headed
  • have a heart
  • have high hopes
  • hit the hay
  • live and learn
  • make merry
  • money makers
  • more the merrier
  • poor but proud
  • sink or swim
  • watchful waiting
  • weary warriors

Can you give me some more cliches or sayings that are alliteration examples for kids to share?
