PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Unlock the power of figurative language for readers and writers with mentor texts. Smekens Education presents Figurative Language Findings—Tuck Everlasting dissected for the 15 types of figurative language listed in the Common Core State Standards (i.e., onomatopoeia*, simile, metaphor, idiom, adage/proverb, allusion, personification, alliteration, analogy, irony, pun, euphemism, oxymoron, hyperbole, paradox).

Use the excerpts in reading lessons to help students infer the author’s meaning and then share the excerpts in writing mini-lessons to help students learn how to apply figurative language within their own writing.

*Onomatopoeia is not required by the CCSS, however, it is a type of figurative language that primary students can understand in their reading and use in their writing.

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Doomed to—or blessed with—eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing than it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.
