This is the first in the series of activities for figurative language. Students match 5 figurative language words with their definitions and examples.
An answer key is included and makes it easy for students to check their own work and make necessary corrections before copying the chart or moving on to the next set of figurative language cards.
Teachers can use these cards in a lesson, a folder activity, a center, or for independent work.
Montessori teachers and homeschool parents can use this for a three-step lesson as a precursor to analyzing and writing literature or poetry.
This set includes:
* Figurative Language Vocabulary Words, Definitions and Examples for: simile, metaphor, hyperbole, and personification
* Teacher Directions
* Student Directions
* Answer Key (Control) for Self Correcting
* Blank Cards for Extension Activities
* Common Core Standards: 3L3.5, 3L3.5a, 4L4.5, 4L4.5a, 5L5.5, 5L5.5a, 6L6.5, 6L6.5a
