PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These activities deal with identifying and interpreting figurative language within the book Nightsong by Ari Berk. The figurative language in this book mainly involves examples of personification and metaphors, and are rigorous enough for upper elementary and middle school grades. In fact, before reading this book to my fifth graders, I had them watch a Brainpop video about bats in order to refresh their background knowledge. Much of the figurative language in this book surrounds the idea of echolocation, and how bats "see" at night even though it is dark. If students do not keep that in mind as they read, the figurative language will be difficult to interpret.

Purchase includes figurative language identification cards/sort cards, and figurative language identification table, and answer keys for both. With these resources, I had my students in groups work towards interpreting one of the samples of figurative language from the book. I then had them switch cards until they had all of them. Then we discussed the meanings of the examples. Since I also included header cards, you could have your students sort the examples before they interpret them. Lastly, I had my students work to complete the graphic organizer with examples of figurative language.
