Language Skills Challenge of the Week is a CCSS weekly approach for reviewing different skills that include: root words, similes, metaphors, idioms, irregular verbs, hyperboles, antonyms, homonyms, synonyms, analogies, personification, and just for fun-famous quotations! Students choose from a menu of examples for these different skills, place the example into the correct category, and then determine the meaning based on context clues or other learning resources.
This includes 36 weeks of practice that can be used in class, for weekly homework, a classroom center, or a challenge for those early finishers!
I am also excited to share some recent feedback from teachers who have purchased this unit:
I love this and so do my kids. This is, as another poster said, one of the best things I have purchased.

This is one of the very best products I've purchased on TpT! I can't believe how thorough and complete this is, and for such a modest price. You really did a lot of work, and I look forward to purchasing other materials from you. The quality and appropriateness of the content is fabulous! Thank you so much.

Love this! Think it is my favorite thing I have purchased from TPT in a long time. Puts all of the skills out there on one sheet which helps with the repetition and continued discussion my students need. Thank you!

One word: "WOW!!!" Thanks again for another great resource. I would love to come visit your classroom sometime. If you are ever interested in letting a couple Rowland Heights teachers hang out for a bit...please let me know! We use your goodies often and would love to see it in action in your space.
