Product Description
"Owl Moon" by Jane Yolen is a gorgeous example of writing using figurative language. This mini-lesson reviews simile, personification, hyperbole, metaphor, and imagery using highlighted portions of the text. It would be a great lesson to use when introducing the importance of citing textual evidence and/or figurative language. If you don't own a copy of the picture book, I recommend viewing it online with your students either at Discovery Education streaming videos or at this You Tube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlllfX5PprU. This lesson supports the Common Core standards as it reinforces the importance of text-based answers. I usually follow up with a lesson on close reading where students analyze the impact of different examples of figurative language on the overall mood and theme.
