Product Description
Dear Purchaser:

With this editable slide deck, you can deliver a multi-media lesson on hyperbole that will capture the attention of your students. I first explain the meaning of hyperbole and then tell why authors use it. For examples, I use one-line jokes, poetry, song lyrics, and a comedy routine. To make it easy, I have included Youtube links in the notes section of slides for the Bruno Mars songs, American Authors song, The Temptations song, and the Abbott and Costello comedy routine. Also, elsewhere on my TpT page, I have uploaded FREE the lyrics for the songs included in this deck of slides. That will save you the trouble of searching Youtube for the songs and the Internet for the song lyrics. At the end of the deck, I have included an application lesson for the students.

HINT: When you pass out copies of the lyrics, ask students to highlight the lines where they detect hyperbole. Share whole class and discuss.

***Thank you for your purchase!!!***
