Need to hit your language standards but want to bring some Holiday cheer to your classroom? This resource addresses figurative language standards in a love filled way!
Posters of 7 basic figurative language categories
Mini-Book for students to write definition, key words, and example + illustration
Writing papers for culminating poem/story writing with figurative language
Personally, I use this activity for a re-teach and practice. I print the posters on pink Astro-Brights paper and go over each of the categories in a whole-group setting. Students complete the mini-books with their groups, and at the end of the lesson, I have students write me a poem using at least 3 of the types of figurative language!
You can adapt this to whatever fits your classroom needs!
