Figurative Language!!

This week in writing, our “little writers” learned how to SHOW rather than TELL in their writing. One strategy they were introduced to was the use of figurative language. Throughout the week, the fifth grade read, analyzed, and discussed examples of similes, onomatopoeia, personification, and metaphors in Shiloh. They also had some practice in utilizing these forms of figurative language in short writing assignments.

Below you will find pictures of the anchor charts I used to reel the students into all things figurative language. You will also find a series of comic strips. These particular comic strips were done online, and allowed the students to practice using onomatopoeia in their writing.
