Ultimate Figurative Language Pack for Upper Level Students

Finally…a language packet designed for your middle and high school students! This packet teaches figurative language skills in a way that students can relate to, containing real-world activities that students observe their peers doing.
I just know your students will love the Song Companion Activities which take a popular song and students interpret its meaning. Or how about matching expressions such as “Chill,” Bummer,” or “Busted” with their meanings? 

Teaching real-life skills is perhaps my favorite aspect of this job. I mean, how many other professionals can address the Common Core Standard Language: 5 (Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings) in such a fun and meaningful way?!

In this “Perfect for Valentine’s Day” packet, you receive:

*30 Idiom Situation Cards (Students are given a situation containing an idiom and are asked to interpret it)

*10 Idiom Bingo Cards (Students play BINGO, matching idioms to their meanings. Perfect to use in a small classroom!)

*36 Common Expression Cards (These are sayings that are common in casual situations such as “Chill,” “Bummer” or “Busted”)
*1 Relationship Expressions Worksheet (Students match relationship terms such as “Crush,” “Head Over Heels,” or “Puppy Love” with their meanings). I had a few high school students who are interested in learning dating rules. This Relationship Expressions Worksheet creates the perfect opportunity to address these figurative terms (not to mention, it’s a perfect Valentine’s Day activity!)

*3 Song Companion Activities (Students are given the lyrics to the popular songs “Ours” by Taylor Swift, “Firework” by Katy Perry and “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield and complete figurative language activities using them)
Worksheet to go with Taylor Swift's "Ours" song

Don’t have time to use it for Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry! This packet can be used anytime!

Create some fun (and meaningful learning) during your middle and high school therapy!
