Figurative Language Independent Practice Worksheets Bundle. This packet of worksheets contains extensive guided practice on figurative language. Metaphor, personification, simile, idioms, hyperbole, and literal language are covered. An answer key is included, which comes in very handy for a "trade and grade" when students are finished.
I use them for classwork, homework, bonus work, and substitute plans. I even assign the bundle more than one time a school year.
Answer key is included.
There are a lot of figurative language worksheets out there on the World Wide Web. What makes this bundle unique is that Bloom's taxonomy is applied throughout. Students move from lower-order thinking skills like defining figurative language, to higher order skills like analyzing and creating figurative language.
There are twelve pages in all, with these sections.
Defining Figurative Language
Identifying Figurative Language
Identifying Figurative Language and Justifying Your Answer
Interpreting Figurative Language
Writing Figurative Language
Reflecting on Figurative Language
Analyzing and Evaluating Figurative Language
The section for Identifying Figurative Language has over 80 sentences for students to practice on. If that is too many for individual students, you can count off the students into groups and divide the work among them.
Here is a list of the poems that are included for student analysis:
A Soldier by Robert Lee Frost
Mowing by Robert Lee Frost
An excerpt from The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll
My November Guest by Robert Lee Frost
To the Thawing Wind by Robert Lee Frost
