This resource is PERFECT for reviewing figurative language with middle school aged students!
This is an AMAZING 22 page resource, however the student packet will only take up 3 photocopied pages (front and back, 6 pages single sided). I designed it to review figurative language, but it can also be used for HW assignments or extra practice for students newly exposed to figurative language.
I teach 7th grade and I have never found a perfect resource for reviewing Figurative Language. Either the resources were too long in length, the worksheets were graphics heavy and not content heavy, or the examples were not challenging enough for middle school. I decided to create my own resource to solve this problem.
This is designed for middle school (6, 7, and 8th grade), however could be used for an advanced 5th grade class as an additional supplement, or a 9th grade class who needs a basic review.
This contains the following:
- A 6 page student packet* with 11 practice exercises that include the following Literary Devices:
- A corresponding 6 page Teacher Answer Key
- A 20 Question Quiz in 2 different formats (one with a word bank and one without to challenge students further)
- Quiz Answer Keys
- A 2 page Teacher's Guide that features the following:
- Sample Lesson Plan for the Week (Do Now ideas, Lesson Schedule, and HW)
- Suggestions for Success
*The student packet contains an definition and example for each type of Figurative Language. It also acts as their study guide for the quiz.
