  • Celebrating March in Figurative Language

    $3.95

     

    March in Figurative Language is a study of 7 figures of speech–idiom, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, alliteration, onomatopoeia, and idiom–illustrated in original sentences or quotations from real people. This 13-page package is presented in three separate lessons of 25 items each.

    Our third month’s calendar position as the transition point from winter to spring, or from summer to autumn if you live in the Southern hemisphere, provides the inspiration for some of the original sentences. Others are based on March’s role as host to St. Patrick’s Day, Women’s History Month, National Cheerleading Week, and the likes of Save a Spider Day on the 14th and Weed Appreciation Day on the 28th. Teachers have the option of adding an extra thinking skill by asking students to connect each sentence to one of the 13 featured celebrations and events.

    Full answer keys are included.
