Figurative Language

Hi Everyone,

A huge part of literacy in fifth grade is figurative language. We have been working on adding figurative language to our realistic fiction stories, our word of the week stories, as well as into our everyday writing. The students have had a lot of fun learning about each. If students identify figurative language in their independent reading book, they are able to add it our figurative language wall. Please see picture below.

Below are examples of figurative language we are learning and using in class. Please discuss this with your children at home.

Thanks!
