This product is a great way to introduce or review figurative language with your students! This products covers simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, alliteration, personification, and idioms. I have created a sort to use in two different ways as well as a review sheet. The review sheet would be good for a formative assessment after students complete the sort :)
