Figurative Language Review

Figurative Language Sort!

Just the Facts: Writing Your Own Research Report AWESOME book for teaching research writing. It is certainly more appropriate for upper elementary and middle school - but all together a wonderful resource with great pictures to use when first teaching research writing!

Figurative language- similies, metaphors, alliteration, etc. Examples of books as well as anchor charts and activities for each! USE THIS PULLMAN TEAM!

Synthesizing-{This book is fabulous for teaching synthesis. It's all about a friendship between an elephant and a little girl. It makes the kids wonder whether it's fantasy and they really are friends or if the elephant is an imaginary friend. They change their thinking a few times, and in the end, they learn that the elephant has an imaginary child. I always re-read it one more time once they make this realization!}--from the website
