WHAT OTHER TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE RESOURCE

♥ This was a truly great unit on figurative language and how the author applied it.  This matches the standards perfectly. The students may need to look up figurative language terms or the teacher may need to review them. This would work especially well for a review of those terms. We had constant debates about the answers. For example, the answer key would say analogy while students would disagree. I let them prove their points and then some students would defend your answers. That was a fun and challenging activity!!

♥ Figurative language is such a major part of literature and to have it broken down in this manner is excellent for helping students to understand the concepts and remember them. Nice way of students looking for examples of figurative language beyond poetry examples. It provides a good amount of differentiation. 

♥ A good resource to expose students to various types of figurative language. We have had some great conversations on a few that could have more than one answer. I like it because the sentences are taken directly from the book. Your students will have it mastered by the end of the novel. Great job!

♥ This proved to be a great way to get my students to analyze the text and prepare them for an essay on the use of figurative language. There were enough quotes from each part of the story that I was able to use some in class with everyone and save some for students who needed extra practice. My students love trying to identify the correct type of figurative language.

♥ I used this resource as an extensive activity after my class had read the book. A majority of my students are EL, so figurative language is difficult for them to spot. The many examples in this excellent product gave them lots of practice applying what they know about the different literary devices. Thanks for all the work you put in to create this helpful resource!
