Figurative Language Read Alouds
Hi, friends! We have been learning a lot about figurative language. Similes, Metaphors, Hyperbole, Personification, and Onomatopoeia are all examples of figurative language. Can you remember an example that would illustrate the meaning of each of those words?
Today we are going to listen to this read aloud of Tar Beach. While you listen, see if you can identify examples of Metaphors. If you find one, pause your video and record it on a sticky note. Remember, metaphors compare two unlike objects WITHOUT using like or as!
Then, if you still have time, listen to this read aloud of White Snow, Bright Snow and listen for examples of similes. Remember, similes are made when an author compares to unlike objects and does use the words like, as, or than. When you find one, you can record it on your sticky note an post it for Ms. Naylor and I to see.
