    Description

    UPDATED! Your middle school students will have a blast using similes to write Valentines to their favorite people or other things they love: TikTok, VSCO girls, Video Games, Netflix, Weekends, Summers, and their Beds! This easy-to-implement 4 day lesson plan focuses on Similes and Irony and includes everything from Brainstorm to Rubric. Now offered in PRINT & GO, and an EDITABLE, DIGITAL version so your students can complete these lessons electronically.

    This Product Includes:

    • The Big Picture question, Essential Questions and CCSS
    • Notes to the Teacher detailing what to do on each of the 4 days of the mini-unit
    • Handouts include: Creating Similes, Brainstorm, Requirements, Drafting, and Ironic Smiles
    • Peer-Conference Sheet
    • Grading Rubric on a 4 point scale that you can align to your grading policy
    • Decorated Stationary for students to write their final Valentines
    • a PDF PRINT & GO version with a link to an EDITABLE, DIGITAL version

    After your students have conquered Similes, they can move onto the METAPHORS activity. You can teach it as a stand-alone activity or as a launch for a Poetry Unit or Unit on Figurative Language. Activity allows for student choice while enabling them to work at their own pace. Always a BIG hit!

    This Product Also Includes:

    • 2 page worksheet for the students to write their answers
    • 2 page worksheet for the teacher to use with sample responses
    • 28 Task Cards (7 color copies with 4 cards on each page)
