Teaching Adages: An Interactive Resource
An adage is a form of figurative language that consists of a short phrase or proverb that teaches a life lesson or speaks a general “truth”. It is a saying that has been passed down over time and is generally recognizable in meaning. Students who have not been exposed to this type of language at home or school may not understand when they come across adages in their daily lives or in their reading. This resource is a fun way to expose them to 32 of these common sayings.
Students can sort, discuss, and write about adages as they learn them...and the materials to create a bulletin board are even included! Full directions and suggestions are included so your lesson plans are essentially ready for you! The adage "sorting cards" come in full color AND black and white and the suggestions for use include full color photos to help you see the resource in action. This product is tied to the CCSS and other sets of rigorous literacy standards. Make sure to check out the preview to see what you get and how you can use this with your students!
