Studying figurative language makes students better readers and writers! In this unit students will define, interpret, write, read, and analyze six types of figurative language: simile, metaphor, personification, onomatopoeia, alliteration, and hyperbole.
Each lesson includes guided instruction, independent writing practice, independent reading practice (with two reading passages for each lesson), and a super fun and engaging figurative language activity. Speaking of engaging activities, in this unit students will be writing alliteration stories, creating wacky and original similes and metaphors, personifying an object with a character sketch and diary entry, drawing onomatopoeia filled comics, and working in small groups to play hyperbole-bonanza. At the end of this unit, students will be able to better understand, write, read and interpret figurative language. These figurative language lessons address the vocabulary acquisition and use standard in the Common Core State Standards.
Each lesson can be taught individually or taught all together as a single unit. (Also, each would work great for a substitute lesson plan.)
