A flip book template for students to identify examples of figurative language.
Things are just more fun when they flip, right?! This flip book is a great way for students to review figurative language!
Figurative Language Literacy Group Activity
Use this flip book as an activity during literacy groups.
- Print a front cover page and examples page for each student.
- Have students cut along the dotted lines of the cover page and glue the cover to the examples page.
- Provide students with example texts to read. Our What’s Buzzing Magazines are a great source!
- Have students find each type of figurative language and write examples.
Since not all texts have every type of figurative language, you can create a challenge for your students! If they can’t identify the type of figurative language in the texts provided, have them write their own as a suggested addition.
