Free! Figurative language anchor word wall cards. Hyperbole, personification, alliteration, metaphor, simile, idioms, & more. For a quick, spontaneous ELA writing activity, I like to attach a few of these to the white board, give the students post-its, an instruct them to write an example of each and stick it on the board near the corresponding poster. If time permits, after every student has at least one on the board, they go get a random one and evaluate it.
This activity was designed for a year 3 classroom. The download includes a copy of the poem "Bleezer's Ice-cream', which can be read to the class. The poem features a lot of alliteration and is thoroughly enjoyed by students due to its crazy flavour combinations.
