Here is a set of engaging Fall task cards for your upper elementary or middle school learners. Aligned with English/Language Arts (ELA) standards, these 20 Autumn-themed cards will have your learners focusing on FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE. Concepts presented in this product include alliteration, allusion, hyperbole, idiom, metaphor, onomatopoeia, oxymoron, personification, and simile. Learners will find sentences within festive pumpkins. They are given two choices to help them identify what type of figurative language is used in the sentences. After choosing the best answer, they use the included recording page to write their answer. These task cards are versatile in that you can use them indoors or outdoors. They can also be used with individuals, small groups, or large groups. Laminate the cards for year after year use. Along with the task cards, an answer recording page is included. Two recording sheets can be found on the page. This will reduce the number of copies or amount of ink used in printing. Task cards and answer recording sheets are available in a color version and a black & white version. An answer key is also provided. PLEASE NOTE: the color version and black & white version are IDENTICAL.
