Figurative language
Old 11-23-2007, 08:12 AM
 

We just finished a complete unit on figurative language. With hyperbole's you can use a variety of resources. Shel Silversteins poem "No Difference," and Tall Tales are a couple that we used. A trick to remembering what a hyperbole is, is to underline the e at the end of the word and make the connection to exaggeration. We made a class book with hyperbole's in it. Students could come up with their own and if they were stuck, we had a list readily available for them to choose from. We love figurative language, it's so much fun! Lots of ideas on idioms, simile's, metaphor's, onomatopoeia, personification and alliteration if anyone needs anything. Just ask!
