One of my favorite writing units comes at the beginning of the year for me. How lucky am I? Actually, I make it that way so I'm kind of creating my own luck ;)
I love poetry, music, and figurative language. When you put all those together, what do you get? MUSIC!
I created an activity that involves looking at song lyrics to find figurative language. It focuses on hyperbole, similes, metaphors, and personifications. You can check it out by clicking here.
Do you explicitly teach figurative language using poetry or music? I'd love to know how.
