Tell Me a Story Tuesday: Figurative Language

We're back!  This week's Tell Me a Story Tuesday was a quick one, and went along with our current focus: Figurative Language!  We have been focusing on finding figurative language in our reading and also generating some new figurative language.  So today, we took a picture and created figurative language around it.  (We had spent the rest of the period reading picture books and pulling out figurative language, so the kids loved switching gears and creating some).

You could do this with ANY picture.  The students' assignment this week is to bring in their own picture.  Then, we are going to do a big figurative language story board with the pictures.  I'm so excited to see what they come up with!
