    Figurative Language Headers (attached below) We teach Figurative Language throughout the school year and during ‘teachable moments’. To keep track of examples, I typed up a ‘heading’ for each of the terms we want out students to learn: Line 1-Figurative Language Term Line 2-Definition Line 3-Example (Source for definitions and examples: http://www.kidskonnect.com/FigurativeLanguage/FigurativeLanguageHome.html) After you download them, they should come out 2 per page. You may need to adjust and re-format the font since not all computers have the same fonts. Glue them to the top of a sheet of upright (portrait) construction paper. As we move through the school year, we post the sentences/examples we find in our reading, whether it’s from our basal reader, read aloud or content reading. These are a few that we’ve already placed on our lists: Simile “…waving their hands like windmills in the air.” From Judy Moody was in a mood. Not a good mood. A bad mood. “It (backpack) stunk like a skunk” From Judy Moody… “Deserts with rocks like enormous sculptures amazed him.” From Grandfather’s Journey “Bombs scattered our lives like leaves in a storm.” From Grandfather’s Journey “He marveled at the towering mountains and rivers as clear as the sky.” From Grandfather’s Journey “Its tall windows were like eyes glaring down.” From Tomas and the Library Lady Personification “The light of the moon followed the old car.” From Tomas and the Library Lady Alliteration Baby bear many mischievous monkeys ===== Webpage Links Figurative Language Lesson plan http://www.teachersfirst.com/mailbot/redirect.cfm?MessageID=359&ListID=49&Link=www.teachersfirst.com/lessons/figure/index.cfm Figurative Language-Love to learn http://www.lovetolearnplace.com/Curriculum/Literary/Literary%20Special%20Effects.html Figurative Language-Personification explained http://library.thinkquest.org/J0112392/personification.html Figurative Language-Personification-quick quiz http://library.thinkquest.org/J0112392/personificationpractice.html Figurative Language-Project-Teachers First http://www.teachersfirst.com/lessons/figure/day1.cfm Figurative Language-Alliteration-Kids see and hear sentences http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/starship/english/games/space_spins/small_no_sound/standard.shtml Figurative Language-Defined and Links for resources http://www.kidskonnect.com/FigurativeLanguage/FigurativeLanguageHome.html (I included the above explanation and weblinks in the attachment.)
