PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students use decoder keys to uncover the "Words of Wisdom" in common proverbs (e.g. "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."), then engage more deeply with the meaning of the metaphors using the included "thinking sheets," or group discussion prompts.

Use to support understanding of figurative language and metaphors; the content can also tie nicely with SEL / social and emotional learning topics in the middle grades, or as practice asking students to take a stand and justify or refute a position (see included thinking prompts).

The download includes instructor notes, thinking sheet template, discussion prompts, full- and half-page decoder templates, and five proverb puzzlers:
- "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."
- "A clean conscience makes a soft pillow."
- "A patient man will eat ripe fruit."
- "Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors."
- "The axe forgets; the tree remembers."

Happy teaching!
