Want a fun way to practice figurative language skills? This interactive bulletin is just what you were looking for! It has everything included and is specifically used to target the following Common Core State Standards:
-L.4.5a Explain the meaning of simple similes and metaphors (e.g., as pretty as a picture) in context.
-L.4.5b Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.
-L.4.5c Demonstrate understanding of words by relating them to their opposites (antonyms) and to words with similar but not identical meanings (synonyms).
-L.5.5a Interpret figurative language, including similes and metaphors, in context.
-L.5.5b Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.
-L.5.5c Use the relationship between particular words (e.g., synonyms, antonyms, homographs) to better understand each of the words.
With 51 pages in total and best suited for grades 4-5, this file includes the following:
-Large Daily Task Questions
-Daily Student Answer Sheets
-Bulletin Board Header Letters
-Envelope Labels for the Student Answer Sheets
Use the images in the START HERE document to see how to set up all your items on your bulletin board, or use a tri-fold board like I did for those classrooms that have little to no extra bulletin board space. You will also need 2 large clasp envelops, o-rings, push pins/command hooks (or something similar to hang items on and near board), and colored paper for the various flower student pieces for the bulletin board.
How to Use:
Once you have your board set up, you can either use your interactive bulletin board as a center or as a whole group activity at the beginning of reading or for morning work.
Students will get an empty answer sheet at the beginning of the week. Each day, you will flip to the corresponding question, and students will write their answer down. Preferably, this is not a graded assignment, but a chance for them to see what they already know or as a review.
At the end of the week – or each day, you can then review the correct answer from the day. There are 4 weeks in total, with 5 questions per week. Students will also be completing an additional step preparing items for the completed class bulletin board display.
