I love the idea of demonstrating alliteration through different contexts (acrostic poems, tongue twisters). A great modification, using the hands-off approach, could be to have students teach their OWN demonstrations of alliteration. They would need to learn the skill in order to teach it, and it could be really fun!

I used Dr. Seuss's ABC book with this lesson and the kids really enjoyed making their own Alliteration poems. It was a lot of fun listening to them focus on letter-sound recognition. We also added a fun art activity to this by having them edit their sentences and add a picture to put out in the hallway.
