Lesson Ideas for this download:
-The teacher can whip out a figurate device poster or two and have the kids search through their books for examples of that device.
-Students could even be split into groups and each have a different device to find, and then share their examples with the class.
-Students may use the posters as a sample to make their own literary device posters in literature or bell work journal.
-Students can start a literature journal. Using different literary devices and examples as prompts, they can: 1) Invent their own examples of each device. 2) Keep track of devices from the literature book.
-This can be incorporated into a grammar unit by having the students write a whole paragraph using the device and proper punctuation/grammar. Look at the grammar unit that is currently being taught and have the students incorporate those rules with a writing assignment that uses these figurative devices.
Example: If you're on a grammar unit about commas, apostrophes, and quotations, have the students write out a conversation that uses hyperbole. This gives them a chance to exercise the use of hyperbole, in a way that relates it to everyday conversation/life outside of school (hitting Bloom's higher level thinking), while still helping them practice application of grammar rules.
