You can click here to download a bunch of Figurative Language activites I use in my classroom. My favorite and my kiddos favorite of these is the FigLang in songs. They loved listening to the music and trying to find all the examples! They were coming up to me for days and telling me about songs they heard with examples of FigLang! They also loved the Figurative Language card game we played! Included in this pack is also an "Alluring Alliteration activity" using letter tiles, a Figurative Language Hunt you can use for any book, and a quick assessment! Another one of their favorite things was to listen to silly poems and pick out FigLang. I used two of my fav poem books for this, and let the kids choral and echo read them during buddy reading this week. They loved it! Here's a few pictures of what we were doing.
Something good from school: The staff I work with, ROCKS!! We just have so much fun together, it should be illegal. Like seriously. Throughout college and my first years of teaching I have been in many schools, and the dynamic of these teachers is THE BEST. We all got each others back's, and everyone collaborates, shares, and loves! Seriously.. I'M LUCKY!
Something good from home: We started booking our summer trip out to Las Vegas!!! I cannot wait!! I have never been to Vegas and I've always wanted to go! Hubs and I decided there's no better time than now. We are going with MIL and FIL, as well as sissy in law and her boy, and brother in law. Did I mention I was excited?!?! We're going to spend 4 days/nights on the strip, 3 days/nights out at a resort just outside of Vegas, and 2 days at Sequoia National Park.. so fun!
Don't you just LOVE positive thinking?!?! I know.. I'm a ridiculous optimist and glass half full kinda gal, but I like it that way. Happy Friday everyone! Don't forget to stop my my TPT and pick up my MLK pack for next week! My kiddos can't wait to start it! Enjoy this long weekend :) I'll be spending most of mine in a gym coaching volleyball! Hopefully getting some grading done in between games :)
