Commonly used Symbols in Literature provides students with explicit descriptions of symbols often found in literature including colors, animals, objects, seasons, and times of day.
In order to meet the needs of diverse learners, the file includes both fully printed copies and blank copies of two different graphic organizers: a "Cheat Sheet" and a circular, clock-like chart for seasonal symbolism. The adjoining Power Point can be used in conjunction with the blank copies or teachers can just pass out the pre-printed forms depending on learner needs. Samples of graphic organizers are included in the sample preview Power Point.
Examples from literature are included in both the cheat sheet and Power Point. These materials are best suited for middle and secondary grade students because the literary quotes may be too advanced for elementary aged students to fully comprehend; however, the graphic organizers are simplified for students of most ages to use.
