Great book to read aloud to class when studying figurative language--puns, palindromes, anagrams...about a boy that is punished and can only speak in puns. The cure can only be found when he is sent out in search of other types of words.
Classroom: Language. Cute All About Me figurative language foldable. Students use themselves as a starting point to list synonyms, antonyms, similes, metaphors, idioms. Now this would stick in a student's mind.
Love this! Maybe do this outside class door and change the theme each month. Idiom, simile, personification, etc...maybe even grammar. Maybe offer extra credit for edit/revision of the week...or if kids bring in something with a typo/punctuation mistake.
