I LOVE this online lesson planning website. As you create a lesson plan, you note what Common Core Standards apply via a dropdown menu. I create a section for each of my periods and save the documents in the file. So snazzy and FREE! Love it!

Figurative Language Song
FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE IN A MUSICAL VIDEO. Love the idea, but I think finding newer music is the best way to do this. The songs they used are older and won't be as relatable to students. Maybe even do it as a class project.
