What teachers have said about this resource:

This was an outstanding find!!! We used this product this year when teaching figurative language, and it was such great practice for the students. I love how clearly it was laid out with the reference information and the practice portion. THANK YOU SO MUCH! -Elyse Jahnke.

These were the best review for my kids! They were struggling with the difference between several types of figurative language, but this helped them grasp it. -Tiffany C.

A great resource. Thanks so much. I especially liked the help teaching metaphor because that's tough. It's nice to provide the students with many examples. Nice work. -Julie A C.
