PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With this short PowerPoint presentation, students learn to recognize and use personification, one type of figurative language. The brief student activities include identifying examples of personification, explaining and illustrating examples of personification, and writing their own examples. Examples of personification included in the presentation are taken from poetry, a movie, and advertisements.
Also see my PowerPoint presentations on similes, metaphors and hyperbole.

Product Questions & Answers

On  December 30, 2011B B (TpT Seller) asked:
Can you explain the meanings of the personification in the poem Summer Grass and in My Town so I can explain the correct meaning with my students?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 1, 2012Classroom in the Middle answered:
In the line "The rain hears; the rain answers," rain is being personified because it is doing things that a person would do - hearing and answering.
In "My Town," the fence posts are personified because they are doing things that a person would do - gossiping and watching. Also, the cars are personified when the author says that they winked at each other.
Hope this helps-
