I can be hard to target multiple goals at once. This activity combines predicting and inferring with figurative language to help save you time and some sanity. It can also save you some precious color ink too!
Here is how to play:
- Read each story and then ask the provided questions. The questions will ask the student the meaning of the figurative language phrase and then to either predict or infer using information from the story.
-Prediction cards have phrases in BLUE
Inferring cards have phrases in RED
There are 24 predicting cards and 24 inferring cards for a total of 48 different figurative language phrases!!!!!
- There are also 6 figurative language matching worksheets. Each sheet contains 8 figurative language phrases and their meanings. Students must match the phrase to meaning by drawing a line to connect the two. These can be used for homework, work in sessions, or to check progress!
* I recommend this activity for starting with higher level 4th graders and up to 7th grade.
