Common Core is here!!!
This is one of my favorite resources! I have used it for the past few years and it is awesome! I use the handouts to introduce the different types of figurative language and the kids keep it a reference in their reading journal.
Throughout the year students write different examples of figurative language that we come across in class and in their silent reading books. They also use this to get ideas and examples of figurative language that they can include in their writing!
My administrators love it so much that they have asked other teachers to use it in their classrooms as well!
