Teachers are Saying:
"We have talked so much about figurative language but for some reason it never "clicked" with my students. Being able to see so many wonderful examples from books they have read finally made it click how important figurative language is! Plus it being a sorting activity allowed such deep conversations about why they thought it was that type of figurative language. Wonderful product!" -Ashley S.
