Figurative Language Findings: Nancy Clancy Super Sleuth
by Smekens Education
Unlock the power of figurative language for readers and writers with mentor texts. Smekens Education presents Figurative Language Findings—Nancy Clancy Super Sleuth 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.
Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth by Jane O'Connor
Nancy Clancy is on the case!
Nancy Clancy has everything she needs to be a super sleuth (that’s a fancy word for detective): She has a glamorous magnifying glass complete with rhinestones, a totally professional pink trench coat, and a sleuthing partner with awesome code-breaking skills—her best friend, Bree. But when crime strikes right in the middle of her classroom, will Nancy have what it takes to crack the case?
