The Figurative Language Quick Starts workbook features activities that include multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, concept application, and creative responses. Quick starts explain and illustrate each of the types of figurative language included: imagery, simile, metaphor, personification, allusion, symbolism, hyperbole, and more. Each page features two to four quick starts that can be cut apart and used separately. The entire page may also be used as a whole-class or individual assignment.
The Quick Starts Series provides students in grades 4 through 8+ with quick review activities in science, math, language arts, and social studies. The activities provide students with a quick start for the day’s lesson and help students build and maintain a powerful domain-specific vocabulary. Each book is correlated to current state, national, and provincial standards.
