Fall is my favorite time of the year! The school year is into full swing, the leaves are changing colors, and the weather is perfect. This is also my favorite time of the year to start teaching figurative language! I designed the following pages so you can use them in a variety of ways. You can have students look through a text and record examples of figurative language they find, create a leaf with different types of figurative language, or create a large bulletin board. I like to teach one a week and add leaves to our hallway “tree” as their knowledge grows.
