This is a figurative language unit to help you teach IRONY, in an Elementary class.
There are 32 individual Task Cards, a poster (or anchor chart), SafeShare QR Codes and a tracking/recording sheet.
The tasks are supported with pictures, context clues and examples.
The posters are illustrated and have kid-friendly explanations.
Everything in the unit is printable and re-useable, when laminated.
Understanding irony is a huge step to improving reading comprehension and writing.
Once a student understands and becomes familiar with imagery, he/she will be able to include examples in writing tasks successfully and confidently. This knowledge also improves comprehension, making students aware that literal meanings aren't always right.
This is a great unit for ESL students and adults, teaching the usage ideas.
There are 32 tasks, which give students complete knowledge, understanding and practice in recognising and using examples of Irony.
There are explanations, activities tasks for Verbal Irony, Situational Irony and Dramatic Irony.
I've used 5 QR Codes, as I feel students love the technology, and pay more attention. However, you could substitute some with the books.
There is an A4 version with Australian spelling included.
This is included in my Figurative Language Task Card BUNDLE.
