Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Figurative Language in Books

Description: 

The best way to learn to write figurative language is to read figurative language written by experts! For these lessons, students will choose a book that contains wonderful figurative language. While they read, they will share their favorite figurative language passages with their classmates. They will end the unit with a final Glogster assignment.

Learning Targets: 
Students will analyze how authors use figurative language.
Students will find figurative language in the books they are reading.
Students will write figurative language that would fit the book.
Students will summarize their books.
