Time to share our seasonal writing ideas! :)
I love, love, love teaching figurative language! I seriously find ways to teach it all year long. There are just so many fun things to do with it! Here is an activity I created (FREEBIE!!) for similes, personification, and onomatopoeia:
I also told you about the Grinch Song activity I do with my kids last week- here are some pictures of the "taking it literally" figurative language:
These two kiddos aren't quite done with the coloring- but their drawings were too good not to share!
And of course, I LOVE reading The Polar Express. We are actually having a "Polar Express Winter Party" on Friday, so we are doing a lot with The Polar Express this week. My Mentor Sentence for the week comes from the book (of course) and there is also an activity in my Language Arts Interactive Notebook for similes from the book!
PS: Workshop Wednesday will be going on Winter Break, too! It'll be back in January! :)
