These colored mini posters can easily be printed and laminated to be posted in your classroom. Each poster includes the definition of the literary term and an example with clip art. This set includes 21 posters with the terms alliteration, antonym, homophone, hyperbole, metaphor, onomatopoeia, personification, simile, synonym, prefix, suffix, fact, opinion, author's purpose, rhyme,analysis, compare, context clues, evaluate, point of view and tone. Posters will print landscape style on regular size printer paper. Pennsylvania Academic Standards are denoted at the bottom of each poster. A set without the PA standards is also available on TPT in case you are outside of Pennsylvania.
Teaching Tip/Idea: To support a vocabulary rich classroom, print these posters and display in the classroom. Post a blank piece of paper or chart paper below each of the posters. As each literary term is encountered in guided reading and literature circles, students can add examples of each literary term to the posters.
*** Also available on TPT is a student version of these posters. In my classroom, I have the mini set posted on my walls. Students then have a notebook (a pocket 3-prong folder or small binder) in which they keep their own record of the various examples of the literary terms that they encounter in their guided reading or independent reading books. This system has worked very well since I accomodate several different grade and reading levels in my guided reading instruction. Please look for the student versions amongs my other TPT listings.
Hello, I live in PA also and give the third grade dreaded PSSA tests. I am always looking to share ideas with each other to help master the PSSA's I was looking at your materials available, check some of mine out also and follow me. I am new to TPT, so I am in the process of adding lessons, games, and other things also.
Hi Nate! Thanks for the link to your TPT store. I actually think we know each other. I am orginally from Mansfield and I actually student taught for your dad I think?????....Tom McNamara when he was in 6th grade at Liberty. Ha, what a small world! I am actually in the process of creating Common Core posters since we are making the switch from eligible content to Common core.

Do you have the Word document? I would just like to add the Illinois Standards to the bottom. These are great! Thanks for taking the time to do them!

Hi Sara, Are these posters delivered as a PDF or a Word document? And by mini posters - are they just in the 8x10 sheets? Thanks
These are a PDF file and yes, they are on standard 8 1/2 x 11 printer paper for ease of printing for everyone. The graphics are large and show up from a distance in any classroom. Let me know if you have any other questions.
My other listing (with the smaller number) was my first posting of the project and they did not have the standards posted at all on them- for those teachers outside of Pennsylvania. The following are a list of the posters and I have denoted the ones that include the standards on the bottom corner and the ones that do not. I hope this helps, but please let me know if I can answer any more of your questions. Thanks for stopping by!
