Here is a simple and visual way to show students how often we read figurative language!
Don't you just love Pinterest! I saw this neat idea on there- have students collect examples of figurative language as they are reading. I've created an area in my classroom where they can write the example they've found on a sticky note and post it under the correct figurative language title. Each time they find an example and identify it correctly they also earn a raffle ticket for a drawing at the end of the month. Here are the titles so you can add this to your classroom also!
