Teach your students the difference between figurative and literal language. The Figurative or Literal Sort Cards Unit, created by It's a Teacher Thing, is perfect for grades 3-7 and comes with the following items:
*30 pairs of sort cards
*Differentiated sort cards for remediation
*Two sort sheets
*Blank sort cards for students to complete
*Two assessments with keys
*Mini-lessons on teaching the difference between literal
*Two T-Charts for using with your lessons
*Options for using the sort cards
*Mini-lessons for teaching similes and metaphors
Some students have never considered that the phrases they read, write, and speak can be either literal or figurative. Use this unit to introduce the difference between literal and figurative language. Students can immediately practice the skills taught in your lesson with the T-Charts and the Sort Cards. I’ve included remediation cards for those needing more support. The tips I’ve provided have been used in my classroom for years and are tried and true. The additional simile/metaphor mini-lessons tips are from my classroom experience as well and help to clear up the confusion some students may face.
