human-like characteristics.
Examples of Personification:

• The wind whispered softly in the night.
• Lightning danced across the sky.
• The sun played hide and seek with the clouds.
Examples of Alliteration in Tongue Twisters:

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Did Peter Piper pick a peck of pickled peppers?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Betty Botter bought some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter's bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
It will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter -
That would make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter,
Better than her bitter butter,
And she baked it in her batter,
And the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.

Use words that start with the letter "L":

_______ Laura likes _________ on the __________.
Use words that start with the letter "T":
