PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

All schools are pushing differentiated instruction these days. As I go through my curriculum this year I am differentiating as I go and updating some of my activities. I usually try to start the year with figurative language because the students have interacted with the topic in previous grade levels and it begins to build their confidence.

I decided that I would color code my different groups rather than number them (tier 1, tier 2, Tier 3).

My groups are:
Lowest level=Green
Middle level=Yellow
High level=Pink


For this song activity the students will all be getting the same songs, it is just that the support they will be receiving is a little varied.
1.For the high level (pink) students will receive just a copy of the lyrics and the types of figurative language found within.

2.For the middle level (yellow) students will receive the number of each type of figurative language found within.

3.For the low level (green) students will receive the number of each type of figurative language AND the lines that contain the figurative language will be highlighted (I highlighted them green so that they will show up dark when copied on a photocopier but you can still read the lyrics).

4.Students will also work to translate the figurative language in the songs into their true literal meanings. There are two different options for the translation of figurative into literal. A blank page and a partially completed page!

What is included:

Five differentiated songs with answer key:
-My Heart's a Stereo
-Ain't no Sunshine When She's Gone
-Take a Bow
-Knocks you Down (clean version)
-Replay

Differentiated figurative to literal with possible answer key

A teacher's guide that explains how I use this activity in my classroom.


****Please note that these are many of the same songs from the bundle below. I just have taken that some of that bundle and differentiated it!
