This resource briefly defines and exemplifies the six most commonly explored types of figurative language: simile, metaphor, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, alliteration, and personification.
Included in this resource are a colorful student handout and a teacher rational that includes directions for use. Coupled with great instruction, this handout will serve as an excellent teaching/study aid. It can easily be displayed on a SMART board for a mini-lesson or manipulation.
Feel free to view the thumbnails.
Happy reading and writing!
