Think of that glazed over look that our students get when we dust off our figurative language terms lesson, go over the terms, ask a few multiple choice questions, and then move on. But none of us really want for the study of figurative language to be like that! And that’s where Blah to BAM! comes to save the day! This resource will really help you to connect your students’ knowledge of figurative language in reading with their own writing.
Included in this free resource, you will find:
- PDF of a presentation which you can use to either review student knowledge of figurative language terms or give the students new knowledge of the topic
- Within the 8-slide presentation is an example paragraph that is lacking figurative language that you can use to model for the students how to incorporate figurative language (and don’t worry… the presentation also includes examples of figurative language to add to the paragraph so you don’t have to come up with any on your own)
- link to the Google Slides presentation from which you can make a copy and revise it as needed based on your students’ needs
- PDF of the student worksheet blah to Bam which will mimic the process used in the example from the presentation
- link to the Google Docs document from which you can make a copy and revise it as needed based on your students’ needs
