Field of Flames
It seemed like an impossible task. Keeping each lantern alight took focus and determination from the whole army of volunteers. Waves of orange and yellow danced in the gentle breeze as the sparkling sea of light took over the horizon. As far as the eye could see, flickering flames shone upon this special place. They were almost ready. It was almost time…
‘sparkling sea’ and ‘flickering flames’ are examples of alliteration. Can you think of other alliterative sentences about this picture? Try adding some alliteration to these sentence starters:
The dark sky…
The people watched…
These sentences are sick and need your help to get better!
The people lit the lanterns. The lanterns were bright. The lanterns filled the sky with light.
Why are the people lighting the lanterns?
Where are they?
Why are the flames described as ‘dancing’?
