Figurative language is a big part of CCSS, and with this packet you can practice this and analogies on a weekly basic. Included is 35 practice pages that address similes, metaphors, idioms, hyperboles, and analogies. Perfect for morning work, morning meeting practice, homework, centers, independent practice, or assessments.
Each page includes:
1.) Graphic organizer with examples of similes, metaphors, hyperboles, and idioms (included is a space to determine the particular type).
2.) Place to analyze the literal and non-literal meaning of each sentence.
3.) Five analogies, including space to determine whether the analogy is a synonym, antonym, or part/whole relationship.
I use this product as part of my morning meeting routine. Each day the students are presented with either a simile, metaphor, hyperbole, idiom, or a set of analogies. The students use these pages for their group and class discussions.
Please see preview for page examples.
