Hello Alternative Assessment and VAAP Teachers!
These worksheets focus primarily on the ASOL 6E-RW 1d. for 6th grade English interpreting similes. There are several different worksheets for different levels of acquisition for your students. I've also used these worksheets as evidence for the VAAP for several students. A couple of the worksheets refers to use of a Thesaurus. I personally use the Kid's Scholastic Thesaurus, which you can find on amazon, but any Thesaurus will do. According to the ASOL, you want to have your students use word reference materials (a.k.a. a Thesaurus) and context clues to derive meaning.
Worksheets included are:
- Picture sort with comparison word, where you students will put two pictures that match the comparison and write their own similes.
- Match the similes to the meaning and identify/interpret meaning
- Identify what is being compared, signal words for similes, and interpreting meaning
- Identify what is being compared, signal words for similes, synonyms of comparison word (word reference material will be used here), and interpret meaning.
