Figurative language is everywhere. It can be found in poetry, in song lyrics, and even on state tests. Figurative language can help to spice of your students’ writing. Help them to learn to recognize common figurative language using these 15 task cards.
They can be used as a ELA test prep activity, a simply review activity, bell ringers, exit slips, or as a pre-test or post-test activity.
I recommend printing these cards off on cardstock and laminating them. This way you can use them over and over again. You can use these cards as they are or place them on book rings to help keep them organized. Next, provide students with the answer key sheet. Now, you are all set.
