PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This figure-of-speech study is constructed around the loosely woven story of a family's Thanksgiving get together. Organized in three sections (Appetizers, Main Course, After Dinner Activities) of twenty-five items each, the original sentences feature a menu of six figures of speech: similes, metaphors, hyperboles, personification, alliteration, and onomatopoeias.

Full answer keys are included.

Fifteen total pages counting cover. Download the sample pages for a closer look.
