Figurative Language Scavenger Hunt- Using Padlet


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 =

  1. Search for Figurative Language in levelled texts during Independent Reading E.g. (Simile’s, Metaphors, Personification, Alliteration, Onomatopoeia, Hyperbole)
  2. Find your assigned Padlet (clicking on the right link that has the name of your reading group)- See below

Kangaroo’s Padlet

Emu’s Padlet

Croc’s Padlet

Giraffe’s Padlet

    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 🙂
