PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Wow! This HUGE packet was a labor of love. I honestly wanted to add a ton more to it, but I’m posting it now in case you are teaching figurative language right now!
My class LOVED working with similes and metaphors, and they especially loved these summer/BBQ-themed activities. It is so easily differentiated for your students’ needs.

This packet contains 4 sets of 28 SIMILE task cards.
1. a numbered colored set
2. a numbered ink-saving set (less color)
3. an unnumbered colored set
4. an unnumbered ink-saving set

This packet also contains 4 sets of 28 METAPHOR task cards.
1. a numbered colored set
2. a numbered ink-saving set (less color)
3. an unnumbered colored set
4. an unnumbered ink-saving set

The simile and metaphor sets contain the same sentences. Only a few are changed to make sense with metaphor usage vs. simile usage. I teach students in special education and I use lots of repetition and lots of practice. For my kids, it worked better for them to see the same sentences over and over, just in written differently (one as a simile and one as a metaphor).

After we practiced using the task cards and working on similes and metaphors as a class, I had a few that were ready for a fun challenge. That’s when I used the “Write your own Simile” task cards. Even though these students were ready for this challenge, they still needed some structure with organizing their thoughts. That’s why I had them brainstorm categories for each of the similes. You’ll notice this once you take a look at the “Brainstorm Idea Page”. Your students don’t have to use this page. It’s just for those who need help with executive functioning and organizing ideas.

The simile and metaphor NUMBERED task cards each have answer keys. These individual sets are for teaching students to identify the two things being compared in each simile or metaphor.

You’ll also find a Simile vs. Metaphor Matching/Categorizing Cut-Apart Cards activity. I used this as a formative assessment to see if my students knew the difference between similes and metaphors. I give other options for using this activity on the instruction page in that section.

As always, if you have any questions about this product, please email me at teacherashley@gmail.com. If you have more than 28 students and you want each child to have a task card (to play SCOOT or use as an individual assessment, please email me!
