This resource contains 4 passages with many examples of nonliteral language written on a 3rd grade reading level. One passage is meant to be used for an entire week with a different assignment each day with the same passage. The students will have to revisit the passage each day to complete the daily assignment. This will support a deeper understanding of the text and provide the student with practice with close reading of a text.
I have included three options for the daily assignments (on pages 5-7) for you to choose from to use based on your students' needs. I have also included a blank directions page if you want to write in your own directions for the daily assignments (page 8).
Print the directions you want to use and the passage and questions for the week. Give the students the handout (page 10) to record their homework on or a blank piece of notebook paper. A journal or notebook could also be used.
For each option, Monday through Wednesday are general open ended responses to the underlined examples of nonliteral language in the text. Thursday contains a table with more examples of nonliteral language from the text for the students to analyze.
An answer key with suggested answers is provided for the Thursday questions.
