Use these 28 task cards for practice determining the meaning of figurative language in a text. Each card has a quote from the book Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan. Six of the cards require students to identify the type of figurative language. The other twenty-two cards require students to choose the best literal meaning of the figurative language. I laminated mine and have students circle their answers on the cards. I included an answer sheet you could give your students, if you want them to record their answers on paper. I provided an answer key as well.
