Level 1-Define

Figurative Language Practice

Goal:

I can accurately define the seven types of figurative language on a consistent basis:

  • simile
  • metaphor
  • alliteration
  • personification
  • onomatopoeia
  • hyperbole
  • idiom

Review:

Use the Figurative Language Presentation and your handwritten notes to review the definitions of each type of figurative language.

Practice:

Create flashcards (use note cards from Miss Neibling) with the name of the figurative language on one side and the definition on the other or use www.Quizlet.com to create digital flashcards. On your own or with a partner, practice the flashcards until you feel confident that you truly know the definitions.

Assessment:

See the teacher for the Figurative Language Definition Assessment when you are sure you can demonstrate your knowledge of the definitions of the seven types of figurative language.


If you do not pass the Figurative Language Definition Assessment the first time you try (need to have 100% correct), you will need to go back and continue to review the definitions before you try again. Your teacher will give you a different version of the Figurative Language Definition Assessment once you are ready to try again.
