Figurative Language

While reviewing figurative language, Room 102 realized this would be an excellent way to incorporate Mother's Day into the curriculum. Students were asked to complete the similes using sticky notes. 

And since Father’s Day follows close behind, a second chart was created with metaphors to describe Dad.

Parents are such special people. Students had fun during this activity choosing words to describe parents instead of just telling classmates about them.  Descriptive writing is all about figurative language.

A shout out to Mrs. Lemons for her simile lesson.
