Do you need some fun figurative language centers for your class? The first activity is a center-based cooperative activity where students can work singly, in pairs, or in groups to increase their ability to differentiate between, simile, metaphor, hyperbole, and personification. This is an all-inclusive activity pack containing teacher directions, task cards, student directions, structured worksheets, and self-check keys.
The second activity reinforces the concept of onomatopoeia. Students pair up into teams, groups of 3, or groups of 4 and race to complete the onomatopoeia activity!
The third activity can be used as a figurative language center or as an assessment. Students are given passages and they have to identify and label the different types of figurative language.
A fourth activity can be combined with the text activity, or completed separately. Students are given a worksheet and asked to write an example of each of the figurative language types and illustrate them.
