PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I give this mini assessment/quiz after I have introduced similes, metaphors, and idioms, and the students have had several opportunities to practice identifying the figurative language types in reading text. This quick assessment helps me check my students' understanding of similes, metaphors, and idioms. I can also use the assessment to identify students needing extra reinforcement of identifying these three figurative language types during small group instruction.

The Common Core Standards require students to determine the meaning of figurative language used in literature. Thus, it is necessary for students to be able to identify the types of figurative language in order to move to the higher level of interpreting the meaning. Students ability to identify the types of figurative helps students in interpreting meaning because they know to look for comparisons being made, and the use of literal and figurative meaning.

I have also used this as a pre-assessment before beginning work on figurative language as a quick check of students' previous knowledge of figurative language.

My tab book is a useful tool for teaching the types of figurative language and practice identifying the types - Common Core Connected
