Concepts presented in this product include alliteration, hyperbole, idiom, metaphor, simile, personification, oxymoron, and onomatopoeia. Learners will find sentences within wintery snowflakes. 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.
