Directions to students: For each box on the mingle form you will have a conversation with a classmate. You will verbally exchange questions and answers, helping each other if needed. No one will write on anyone else’s paper. Your partner will tell you the sentence so you can write it, and vice versa. You can’t work on a box with the same underlined word as your partner. That means each conversation involves TWO of the underlined words. Once your partnership is complete, move quietly to find a newly available partner. You can’t use the same partner more than once.
Underlined words: personification, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, idiom, metaphor, imagery.
