Product Description
This figurative language unit helps students determine meaning of words and phrases that are used in texts by building understanding of literal and non-literal language. Figurative language posters, matching game, and poetry writing activities will familiarize students with many different phrases so that they can build decoding skills. Pigs are the subject of many idioms and similes that students are already familiar with, so it makes a great starting point. Students will LOL this silly fun with poetry, poetry devices, figurative language, metaphors and similes. Poem writing in different forms: cinquains, acrostics, diamantes. Resources for poetry use by Jack Prelutsky... can be used with any of your favorite poetry.

These resources can be used in your listening centers, reading groups, guided reading, shared reading, literacy circles and more.
