LET’S BREAKDOWN THE WEEKLY ROUTINE:
Students will engage with the weekly figurative language example in the following ways:
- Monday – Students read the figurative language example in the context of 2-3 sentences. They identify the type of figurative language and make a prediction about what it means.
- Tuesday – students can use a variety of resources to figure out what the figurative language phrase actually means.
- Wednesday – Students dig deeper and explain the clues that help them identify the type of figurative language and explain why the author might use this phrase in their writing.
- Thursday – Students draw a picture or symbol that shows the figurative or literal meaning of the phrase.
- Friday – Students create their own figurative language example.
LOVED BY BOTH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS:
→ Your students will love how fun and engaging the daily tasks are. They will enjoy digging deep into the study of a specific figurative language phrase they might not understand.
→ You’ll love how quick and easy this routine is. It will take just a few minutes out of your instructional day but will have a huge impact on your students’ vocabulary and comprehension.
