Figurative Language Findings: Magic Tree House #1: Dinosaurs Before Dark
by Smekens Education
Unlock the power of figurative language for readers and writers with mentor texts. Smekens Education presents Figurative Language Findings—Dinosaurs Before Dark dissected for the 15 types of figurative language listed in the Common Core State Standards (i.e., onomatopoeia*, simile, metaphor, idiom, adage/proverb, allusion, personification, alliteration, analogy, irony, pun, euphemism, oxymoron, hyperbole, paradox).
Use the excerpts in reading lessons to help students infer the author’s meaning and then share the excerpts in writing mini-lessons to help students learn how to apply figurative language within their own writing.
*Onomatopoeia is not required by the CCSS, however, it is a type of figurative language that primary students can understand in their reading and use in their writing.
