Use this bundle to assist you in teaching those tricky figurative language devices. In the bundle you can get: posters, booklet template, SCOOT! cards, task cards, I have/Who has cards, and Figurative Language Wheels. Everything is created in color or black and white.
How to play SCOOT! (32 cards)-
Place the cards throughout your room. Students stand by one SCOOT! card. Using the answer sheet, students will identify which figurative language device is being used. They will then write that on their answer sheet. When you call out SCOOT! students are to move to the next desk. For a bit more fun, have students do a certain movement before scooting (jumping jacks, star jumps, lunges, ect...) Repeat this process until all the cards have been answered or until time is up!
How to use the task cards (20 cards) -
Use these as a whole class or within a small-group station. Students would complete the assigned task on each card. The task cards have a variety of different multiple intelligences addressed.
How to use I Have/ Who Has cards (20 cards) -
Use these a supplement when teaching figurative language. The student who has the card with the blue flower will start. Students will go from card to card until the final card is read.
How to use the Figurative Language Wheels (5 sets)-
Use these wheels during an independent work time.
Teacher Preparation: You will need to cut apart the eight figurative language devices. You could either glue the devices onto a clothespin (students will stick the clothes pin onto the correct sentence) or leave as is (they will place it on the correct sentence). Print the wheels double-sided with the wheel and answer key.
Students will choose one wheel. They will read each sentence and decide which figurative language device it is using. They will then put the correct device onto the sentence. They will continue this until the wheel is complete. When they flip the wheel over, they can check the numbers/colors matches up on the back!
