This package includes 3 activities to teach and practice similes and metaphors. All of these activities are in black-and-white to save on printing costs.
Similes and Metaphors Sort:
Students will cut the simile and metaphor cards out (8 total). They will use the Simile and Metaphor headers to place each card in its appropriate category. Students can record their answers on the recording sheet (included), or use the answer card and then glue the sort in an interactive notebook (reading, vocabulary, writing, or word work). You may also want to print and laminate the cards on colored paper or card stock and reuse. To do this, you could put them in a baggie or bin for students to access in guided reading, at a word work station, or use as your whole group instruction.
Similes and Metaphors Board Game:
This game is very simple to prep. Because it is in black-and-white, you may choose to make a set of copies and have students keep them in their reading folders to use again. Or, you can copy on colored paper or card stock, laminate, and reuse. Students will need dice and game pieces to play. They will identify each example as a simile or metaphor as they move around the board. You may also want them to explain what each simile or metaphor means. They will use the answer card to check.
Me as Similes and Metaphors:
Students will write an acrostic poem using their name. In the acrostic poem, they will write similes and metaphors about themselves. A direction card, example, and final draft paper are included.
All of these activities can be used as whole group instruction, as partner work or independent work in centers, in guided reading groups, and/or assigned as homework.
Thanks for viewing!
