This product is created as an animated power point. Fantastic for input and guided practice to figurative language. It is an excellent tool to use when introducing students effective ways to begin any writing assignment.
The use of various figurative language ( taught as the acronym, "SHRIMP") and writing techniques will hook a reader's attention.
challenges for independent practice
white board activities
attention grabbing animation
silly ways to remember the material
journals prompts (I refer to them as "Treasure Books" entries), noted with a picture of a "treasure chest".
The final page is meant for teachers to print out and distribute to each student. It notes definitions and examples of all key points in the lessons. It is organized for easy cutting and pasting into student journals for their future reference or simply kept in a folder.
This power point is not meant to be used in one class period, instead it should be used in segments and prepares students well for not just state tests but for real life!
