A template to practice using onomatopeias in a piece of text.

Use this resource when teaching your students about the different sound devices authors use when writing text.

Print out the template and place it inside of a dry-erase sleeve for students to practice using onomatopeias in their writing. Alternatively, project the template on your dry-erase board and use it with your whole class when teaching this sound device.

Students will list 4 onomatopeias and use them in a short story.

This resource is great to use with your reading small groups and as a reading center activity.
