These worksheets, lesson plan, and leveled assessments, created by Mary Wilkinson, will help you teach the form of figurative language called Adages. Adages are sayings that seem to be true from years of use. These can be categorized as common adages, words of wisdom or proverbs, and maxims. Unfortunately students today have not heard many of these old adages and are confused when they do hear them. Help your students understand adages for the common core standards they must master in language arts.
Common Core Standards- RL. 4.4, RL.5.4, RL.6.4, RL.5.10, L.4.4, L.5.5, L.6.5
