Middle school writers have no shortage of creative ideas. They can write stories at the drop of a hat. But have you read those stories? Creative ideas, yes. But the writing can be so plain!
Authors and teachers know that using more figurative language will liven up dead prose. The Monster Mash Figures of Speech Drill is just the thing for getting students interested in learning the dozens and dozens of figures of speech that they can begin adding to their writing—right away!
The drill provides fun "kid-friendly" definitions of 7 powerful figures of speech and provides INSTANT assessment so that teachers can know whether their students attained the knowledge.
Included: master copies for students, example texts, and visual (slide/screen captures) for everything.
