In my classroom, I hang laminated interactive figurative language posters. After I discuss a type of figurative language, I have my students search for examples as they are reading. If a student finds an example, he or she takes a dry-erase/Vis-A-Vis marker and writes it on the laminated poster (along with his/her name and book title...if it will fit). The posters stay up all year long. Once a poster is filled, I simply erase and it starts over.
This is a great way of assessing my students' knowledge of figurative language (and they don't even know it :-) Also, if a poster is left blank or nearly blank, it may mean that my students don't understand that particular fig. language and they need further instruction.
The pictures on each poster correlate with the interactive figurative language booklets I have in my store.
This packet is now a part of a figurative language bundle!
