These Figurative Language Posters are a great way for you to introduce different types of figurative language and can also be displayed in the classroom and used as a reference for your students. There is a poster for each type of figurative language including similes, idioms, metaphors, hyperboles, proverbs, allusions, alliterations, personifications, and onomatopoeias, as well as a title poster that says Figurative Language. I included two sets of 10 posters to help you match your classroom style!
