This product includes a ‘teach’ page that may be used as a small poster on the wall or as a student handout. Each form of figurative language includes an introduction poster highlighting an example from the text with an explanation of the figurative language being used, as well as a second page listing other examples from the text for the teacher. The other examples may be used if you observe that some reteaching is needed. I’ve also included mini-posters (without the explanation piece) in black and white. If your students use notebooks, this might be a nice addition to their notebook pages. They can list other examples in their notebook with the mini-poster to remind them of the example that you shared with them.
Students can use the bookmark to collect examples of figurative language during their reading. Have students use the bookmark to collect examples during the week and then fill out the worksheet page explaining two of their examples in depth at the end of each week. This will allow you to check for understanding and notice where you may need to do some review/reteaching along the way. At the end of the novel, there is a figurative language quiz to take.
