I love sorts because they engage curious minds and get students working right away! They are like a puzzle that students want to figure out.
This sort works with Google Drive or Google Classroom to assess students on their knowledge of figurative language and sound devices. Students sort figurative language by definition and example - hyperbole, metaphor, simile, idiom, and personification. Additionally, students sort sound devices by definition and example - alliteration, assonance, slant rhyme, internal rhyme, repetition, onomatopoeia, etc.
The students can drag and drop the answers to the correct column.
Why a Digital Sort?
-Saves precious time
-An innovative way to captivate students
-No messy cutting and clean up
-No prep time
-A Google Drive account
-If sharing with students, a Google Drive account that is linked to student Google accounts
-Can be shared on Google Classroom and ‘turned in’ as as assignment on Classroom
