Product Description
I created this visual to use with my high functioning ASD students to help explain the concept of figurative language. When using this visual, I first laminate it so I can write on the spaces provided. I will pair this idiom cards or a figurative language activity. I start by reading the card and filling in the prompts; for example: "It's raining cats and dogs," it sounds like cats and dogs are falling from the sky, but it really means that it's raining hard or pouring rain outside. Once my students get the hang of the visual, I have them fill in the first part "It sounds like..." and then either we will discuss what it really means as a group, or I will give a scenario to help them figure out the actual meaning. My students have been loving it. I hope you find it useful as well! Enjoy!
