Practice

Create flashcards or use Quizlet to create flashcards for the seven types of figurative language. If you would like to make your own flashcards, you may get notecards from the teacher. Put the definition on one side of the notecard and the type of figurative language on the other side of the card.


On your own or with a partner, practice the flashcards until you are sure you know the definitions.
