This great set takes 27 different figurative language statements from The Tale of Despereaux and gives students practice identifying Similes, Metaphors, , Personification, Onomatopoeia, Idioms, and Hyperbole on task cards. Two versions of the same cards are included: one with a colored background and one with a color saving white background. A student recording sheet is included along with a teacher answer key for the task cards. These cards work great in small groups, literacy centers, individual practice, etc.
A set of reference cards are included that define each type of figurative language and give an example to help students as they are working through the task cards.
