Today’s five words are about poetry.
1. Rhyme – That’s when words are kind of like each other. Kind of. I’m kind of like the dog planter. Kind of….
2. Alliteration – That’s when words start the same. Lots of Mom’s sentences start out the same. They are usually, “Cupcake…” and “Cupcake!….” and “CUPCAKE!!…” And then, “Ugh!”
3. Haiku – Bless you.
4. Imagery – That’s when words make a picture. Why can’t a picture make a picture? Like this!
5. Onomatopoeia – Thats when a word sounds like a sound. Like bow-wow, woof, ruff, slurp, meow, tick-tick-tick, and bzzzzzzz. That last one is the dreaded sound of the evil mechanical hamster. Soon, I am hoping to make the sound of CRUNCH, RRRIP, and SMUSH with that horrible thing.
