Figurative Language is a fun unit to teach!! What a great way for students to practice various figurative language with Ipads/ipods. Students will scan the QR code and listen to a story and then use one of the graphic organizers to show the figurative language from the story. Use one as a whole group activity and then use the rest in a listening center for further practice.
I have used I-nigma as a free QR reader, but there are many others out there that are free.
All of the books go through SafeShare so no student will be able to access Youtube.
Graphic Organizers 2 different versions: One with definition of each figurative language, one without. Use these stories as an activating strategy or as independent listening centers after you have taught the concept.
