Figurative Language 'Finds'
Old 03-26-2008, 07:18 PM

I was looking through my files and found a couple more pages you might be able to use.

Both pages were developed by my fourth grade colleague.

This attachment is a page we used this school year for the different stories we read in our basal reader, our read-alouds or independent home reading.
It's divided into sections with the term, brief definition and example of
  • onomatopoeia,
  • simile,
  • metaphor,
  • hyperbole,
  • alliteration,
  • idiom, or
  • personification.
As students read (or listen to) their stories, they write the examples they encounter. We used this page as a group for many stories before they were asked to use the page independently. (We also keep track of these figurative language examples on sticky notes that are placed on the appropriate figurative language charts in the room.)
