I reviewed Figurative Language with my class the week before we went on Winter Break and they loved it. They confused metaphors with similes as well as hyperboles with idioms. Creating something new for figurative language has been on my radar for awhile because I have second language learners. I already have a great, hot selling product called Figurative Language is a Hoot. Read about it here. However, I wanted to create something seasonal that we can do every holiday to reinforce these literary devices. The more practice, the more mastery and the more that they will start noticing, identifying, classifying and using them in their writing, reading and speaking.
So I created something for Valentine’s Day, since it is just around the corner.
personification, alliteration, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, simile, and metaphors.
Then, they will write their own examples for each, using the brainstorming page
to help them remain on topic. Finally, all of the poems will be written on a
heart. By assembling them together a 3d model will be created which is an
adorable and bulletin board display, The students get to be creative while
reviewing language concepts. This product will be included in a seasonal
Figurative Language Craftivity
so that the students will have the ability to practice all year long.
in this set:
for all 6 poetic devices
pages for each of the literary devices
brainstorming sheet for Valentine’s Day ideas and symbols
Valentine’s Day idiom game
pictures for assembly
students will LOVE playing around with language and creating a beautiful
work, direct instruction, sub-work or homework! Check my instagram because I am giving one of these away or grab one at my Teachers Pay Teachers store!!!
Super cute! We're studying figurative language in the next few weeks. This will be great!
