This worksheet, created by Susan Watters, was designed to help fourth and fifth graders with a reading comprehension concept they were having difficulty with: common words they know being used in a different way- figuratively. There is an example that serves as a mini-lesson, and three additional practice questions. The question stems are similar to what will be encountered on the CST (California Standards Tests), in that the students are being asked to choose the meaning of a word in context. For each question, there are four multiple choice answers, and several of each are literal definitions of the word. The objective is for the students to understand that the word is not being used literally, but rather figuratively, and to find that meaning based on context clues. A highlighted answer key is attached.
