Figurative Language Stories for Close Reading, Writing for Grades 6-8

Original stories written to include nine types of figurative language!

Perfect for small groups, stations, or assessment; students practice close reading as they annotate stories and identify figurative language and its relationship to tone and mood as well as story elements.

All activities are aligned to Common Core Standards. The following are the figurative language devices used in this packet: alliteration, allusion, hyperbole, idiom, metaphor, onomatopoeia, personification, simile, and symbolism.

Each story includes twenty examples of figurative language for students to identify through close reading and annotation. Students will love writing their own endings to the stories (using and identifying figurative language) before reading the actual story ending provided. High-level questions focus on connection between figurative language, tone, mood, and story elements.

Background information includes CCSS, annotation example, figurative language definitions, and tone and mood definitions

Most appropriate for grades 6–8, these stories will also work for advanced fifth graders or review for older students.
