We are continuing with figurative language in my literacy class this week. I created a few entrance and exit slips for them over the past few weeks. I just made an entrance slip for personification. As I brainstormed on the topic(s) I would use to review this skill, I noticed in my school bag a set of freebies I got at the French Lick Spring Blogger meet-up (#springteacherbloggermeetup2015). They are a bag of small (1-inch) weather cut-outs. My students will choose one of the weather cut-outs. They can choose from a cloud, a rain drop, a lightning bolt, a sunshine, a snowflake, or a group of rain clouds. They will glue the cut-out to the strip of paper, then write a personification sentence adding a human characteristic (or comment) to the type of weather they choose. This should give me a quick view of who can apply their knowledge of personification to non-human objects! Easy-peasy!
Click here or on the picture below to download the Weather Personification entrance slips! Leave a comment for me letting me know if it is something that will be useful to you, or if you have better ideas or suggestions as to how I can improve them (or just add to them!).
Thanks and have a great spring week! Don't forget to add your link and comment on a few other bloggers' Sunday Scoop posts! :)
