As a teacher you know how important it is for your students to know, understand, and be able to apply and create with figurative language. Having this knowledge, enables your students the opportunities for inference and application with their own reading and with literature selections of their favorite authors. This unit contains teacher instructions and explanations of figurative language. It provides examples of each form and allows for the student to practice and write about their favorite piece. I've included a graphic organizer so that they may identify figurative language in their own readings and write examples of each. There is also some writing paper so that students may finalize their writing and share in their portfolios.
