PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This freebie will guide you through the four main steps you'll use to have students notice, name, explain, and try figurative language in their own writing.

They'll notice the language with you, help you build an anchor chart recording the figurative language you noticed, and participate in a discussion about why the author chose to use that language.

The figurative language used in the book includes onomatopoeia, personification, simile, alliteration, and sensory details.

After you've noticed the figurative language, named it, explained it, and charted it, you'll use the included graphic organizer to brainstorm figurative language to use in your own writing and model writing a descriptive paragraph for your students.Your students will write their own descriptive paragraphs!
