I found this lesson just in time! I am being evaluated in two weeks, and I wanted to do Figurative Language, concentrating on Idioms. I love how I can easily differentiate this for my higher students, too! It also hits multiple intelligences as well. Thank you, RL, for such a comprehensive and INexpensive resource!!

I used this product last year as a great supplement to our literary device study. The worksheets were great, student friendly and keep their interest. I used the worksheets for stations around the room also. One literary device worksheet per station, students rotated through the stations until they finished. It was a great fun review thanks to this product!

Having difficulty reading once printed off because youe see a double image black type on top and then a shadow of blue behind it and students and I can't read these great resources; Figurative Language, Sequencing and Main Udea sequencing cards.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 28, 2014Rachel Lynette answered:
Hi Lois,

I am sorry you are having trouble with the cards. I haven't heard any other complaints (and they look fine for me), so I think the issue must be on your end. You can try downloading from another computer or if that does not work, contact TpT customer support - they are amazing!

I hope this issue gets resolved!

Best,

Rachel

Hello. I have found some errors on the "Simile or Metaphor" page. The word lightning is misspelled as lightening, #15 "The nail is pillow" seems to be cut off, and punctuation is missing for #15, 17, 19, and 20. I'd love to use this page with my students with this corrected. Could you please let me know when it's corrected? Thanks so much!

On  February 22, 2013The Peanut Gallery (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi, Rachel- I love your packet! I have not gone through the whole thing yet, but I printed two metaphor worksheets to use with my students and have found some errors. It would be great to have corrected copies so I can use them. The two pages I printed are 9 and 12. Page nine has missing periods. Page 12 has missing words in sentences 4 and 15 and missing periods in a few of the sentences also. Any help is appreciated!

Errors are fixed...sorry it took my so long. I've had it on my list for awhile.
On  January 5, 2013Comprehension Connection (TpT Seller) asked:
Rachel,
I bought your figurative language pack and nonfiction pack, and I have found a few typos in both when I used them with my students. The similes/metaphors section had a few missing periods and words. The similes intro page included a metaphor accidently, and on the glossary page at the bottom you left out a space for the definition. I am really pleased, but in the future when I use them, I do want a corrected version. If you change the file, will you notify so I can redownload? Thanks! Carla

Hi Rachel,
I gave feedback on the figurative language worksheets I just downloaded; however, when I went back and looked again I couldn't find the CC standards that I was sure I had seen on the preview I downloaded. Am I overlooking this page? If so, I will definitely look again! I know you have it listed on the resources page. Just wanted to follow up on that.
Thanks,
Nancy

On  March 27, 2012Rachel Lynette answered:
Nancy,

Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. This was completely my error and it has been fixed. The document with the standards is not loaded and you can download it on your purchase page. This is why I should NOT work late at night!

I would love to thank you for pointing this out to me. Please pick a free product - anything under $7 (or a few sets of task cards if you would prefer since they are less expensive) and send me an email at reallyrachel@gmail.com and I will send them your way.
