Here is a preview of a set of six powerpoints to teach figurative language through images and explanations. The powerpoints have 20 items each. There are two levels each for Figurative Verbs, Figurative Nouns, and Figurative Idioms/Phrases.
Students need to identify and understand figurative language in their reading and to use figurative language for all 3 kinds of writing for CCSS. Although the target group is Gr. 3-8, teachers with English language learners or high-needs students will find these appropriate for higher grade levels.
