This is a fun way to teach students to identify figurative language! Students can easily play independently to identify similes, metaphors, hyperbole, and personification. My goal is to make my products easy to incorporate into the classroom with little prep work for the teacher. The colors are simple and easily print in black and white. Please take a look.
Common Core Objective: Students will demonstrate understanding of figurative language.
Students can work in groups of 2-4 players. You may have 2 students playing against 2 students or 1 student playing against another student. Having 2 students playing together will allow them the opportunity to discuss the type of figurative language contained in the sentence. This would be beneficial for ELL students or students with special needs. Identify one student as Student A and the other as Student B. Detailed directions are included for the teacher and student. The student that correctly answers three in a row (just like tic tac toe with Xs and Os) wins! Answers are provided to check and students can replay multiple times. For a challenge, blank Figurative Language Sentence boxes are provided for students to create their own sentence.
This game can be combined with my Figurative Language Card Game which also includes practice identifying similes, metaphors, idioms, and onomatopoeia.
I also have many other games in my store. My #1 best sellers are my Point of View 1st person, 2nd person, 3rd person (card game) and Tic Tac Toe games for Point of View, Fact & Opinion, and Cause & Effect. Please check them out if you need additional activities for whole group or small group instruction. Thanks!
