ABOUT THIS RESOURCE:
This resource was created to be used as part of readers workshop in the intermediate/middle school classroom. This would also work as a 'center' if you do centers in your classroom. During readers workshop, students need independent practice on concepts currently taught during direct instruction. Anchored in Reading has started a line of resources to do just that! This resource focuses on Personification. Students will work individually or in small groups to sort statements into examples and non-examples of personification. Also included in this resource are two worksheets. One is a basic identification worksheet and the other requires application of skills. You could use both worksheets to scaffold instruction or you can use the worksheets as differentiated work. For example, offer the identification worksheet to lower level students or offer the second worksheet to higher level students. The worksheets are marked LL (Lower Level) and HL (Higher Level).
