Figurative Language Scavenger Hunt- Using Padlet
READING – FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE
We have been learning to: identify and describe the effects of different language choices in texts.
I can: identify, define and explain why an author might use (Simile’s, Metaphors, Personification, Alliteration, Onomatopoeia, Hyperbole)
Here are some figurative language characters and a anchor chart of examples to help us remember them. These are also up on display in our classroom in our reading corner.
Here is a video of Figurative Language used in some Movie Clips we know (They are quite funny and there is a little test at the end)
Purposeful Reading Tasks – Figurative Language Scavenger Hunt:
PRA Task Week 5 =
- Search for Figurative Language in levelled texts during Independent Reading E.g. (Simile’s, Metaphors, Personification, Alliteration, Onomatopoeia, Hyperbole)
- Find your assigned Padlet (clicking on the right link that has the name of your reading group)- See below
3. Enjoy adding the Figurative Language examples you have found from texts into your assigned Reading Group Padlet by double clicking anywhere on the Padlet page
4. When a text box is created make sure to add your name and the title of the book in the title section E.g. Miss Glassford- Text = ___ Simile = ‘My Dad is as busy as a bee’.
5. Your group will then share your wonderful findings at the end of the Reading Session to the rest of the class.
Happy reading and sharing 🙂
