Can you tell I am in alliteration mode? I feel that I have been speaking in Figurative Language for weeks now!! We just finished up our Figurative Language Unit with an assessment today, and let me tell you, I LOVE Fig. Lang., but I am plum tuckered out from it all! On a positive note though, my kiddos LOVED FigLang. They had an absolute BLAST with all of our activities and making up their own funny and fun FigLang! I think their favorites were Hyperbole and Idioms. They loved that they got to exaggerate for fun in school and make up silly things that weren’t taking literally! The best part, they TOTALLY UNDERSTOOD IT!!!!!!! Now that is what I’m talking about. Of my 56 kids, only ONE, I repeat, ONE got lower than a 2 on the assesment! 80% of my kiddos got 3’s!! (We do a 3, 2, 1, grading scale.) I was one proud teacher when I was grading them! Now I plan on putting together an entire Figurative Language pack for TPT of ALL of the activities I use to teach this, but in the meantime, I thought I’d link up with Teaching Blog Addict’s Friday Freebie link!
I also saw this linky party and couldn’t resist. One of my favorite things about blogging is the wonderful advice you get from other teachers and examples you see of teaching! It’s such a warm and fuzzy place 🙂 So I’m linking up with Rowdy in First Grade for her tell me something good linky!!
