      Figurative Language - GREAT video!! I prepared a worksheet for my students. They copied down parts in the lyrics that were similes or metaphors, identified each according to what it was and then wrote what the artist was comparing...the true meaning behind the words. My students sat on the edges of their seats waiting for each song! It was a very engaging way to teach these literary devices! . . . some ideas for teaching figurative language.

    I've used this song with my students. It has over 30 similes. I did three activities with it. Allowed them to first just listen to it with the lyrics showing on YouTube. Next, I told them to write as many as they could in their journals while listening to the song. I allowed the kids to pick one of the similes in the song and do an illustration (with help from art teacher). I am going to make a video with their pics using the song! The video is complete! Great idea! already have the song

    use song lyrics to teach poetic devices and figurative language.....just be sure it is school appropriate

    Pass out the words to the Grinch song and we listen to it on You Tube. Split students into random groups. Give the students about 10-15 minutes to find as many similes and metaphors in the song as they can. Use www.christmaslibr... They then write their similes and metaphors here to display in the hallway and classroom.
