Figurative Language Differentiated Reading Passages and Questions for Reading Comprehension
Types of figurative language included: simile, metaphor, idiom, alliteration, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, and personification
Perfect for grades 3 – 6
If your students are anything like mine, they take everything literally. They are often surprised that words or sayings can have a figurative meaning.
This resource is NOT a simple “identify the figurative language” resource. Your students will have to go deeper and interpret meaning, write their own figures of speech based on the text (transfer), and expand and develop figurative comparisons using metaphors and similes of their own. I’ve differentiated each text so you can meet the needs of each reader in your class.
This resource includes everything you will need to practice figurative language with your students! I’ve included THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EACH PASSAGE for you to easily differentiate in your classroom! There are also short-answer and multiple choice questions for your students to practice figurative language.
Included in this resource:
This resource contains ten differentiated fiction passages. There are three levels of each passage so you can easily differentiate with your students. The levels are based on word count and Lexile levels, which can be found in the top left corner of each passage.
