Looking for a different way to teach and practice Figurative Language? This Figurative Language Mini Book Collection is JUST what you need! You will love the ease of prep and your students will enjoy creating and completing each of the 8 mini books in the set!

Please see the PREVIEW above for an idea of everything included in this loaded resource!

Each of the 8 booklets in this mini book collection ONLY USES 1 SHEET of paper! Plus, I've provided both Black/White and Color printing options for your convenience!

The packet also includes a photo guide, showing exactly how to assemble the books. NO glue, tape, or scissors required! Just a few folds and cuts of the page, and your booklets are created. It's quite simple!

This Figurative Language Mini Book Collection includes books for:
• Figurative Language Overview
• Similes
• Metaphors
• Idioms
• Personification
• Alliteration
• Hyperbole
• Onomatopoeia

In each of the 8 booklets, students are provided with a definition and examples. They are then required to create their own examples, explanations, and illustrations. So, while students are completely engaged and enjoying the activity, they are also gaining a deeper understanding of each form of figurative language.
