When teaching standard L4 for third grade, it is helpful to know what the students can recognize. Included in this file are two exit slips for each figurative language type. The exit slips have short original passages that contain figurative language for the students to identify and define.
These exit slips can be used as a quick pre-assessment to see what students already know about each type of figurative language or they can be used at the end of the lesson to see what they have learned.
The stories included are:
Similes - Hide-and-Seek & New Pet
Metaphors - Birthday Cupcake & Laundry
Hyperbole - Birthday List & Science Test
Idiom - Grandparents & The Mistake
Personification - Train Ride & Breakfast
Onomatopoeia - County Fair & My Backyard
