This is an easy to administer pre assessment for figurative language. Students will match 24 terms to their correct definition. Our school requires pre and post tests, so I also use it as a post test. You can also use this as a homework or skill builder when you teach figurative language in your curriculum.
UPDATED to include an additional assessment using Shel Silverstein's poems. I have also provided a key, a scoring guide with level of student need, and the CCSS.
This resource includes:
*24 figurative language terms
*2 poems for students to analyze and identify figurative language
* Tier level of student need
* Common Core Standards
