What is OH SPAM?
OH SPAM is a fun way to remember
six common forms of Figurative Language.

Figurative Language is creative ways to
write ideas to help readers
understand and visualize what you
are trying to say.
Definition: comparing two things
using "like" or "as"
Examples:
**Allison's smile shines like the sun.
**Watching Evan skateboard is like
watching a leopard leap through a jungle.
**Jonah is as energetic as a
football player after a touchdown!
**Mrs. Ziemer's heart is as soft
as a feather pillow.
Well, FIRST we will review six main types using OH SPAM. AFTER THAT, you are going to write your own poem using the figurative language!


Definition: the SOUND of the word is what it means

Examples:
bloop, splash, spray, squirt, drip, drizzle, giggle, growl, gurgle, mumble, murmur, belch, chatter, blurt, bam, bang, clang, clank, clatter, click, ding, jingle, screech, slap, thud, thump, flutter, fisst, fwoosh, gasp, swish, swoosh, whiff, whoosh, whizz, whisper, arf, baa, buzz, chortle, cock-a-doodle-doo, cuckoo

When Zach came into the class,
everyone shouted, "Whoo-hoo!"
A brisk sound, a swift sound,
a ring-tinkle-ring
Flies from a shadow through
the crackling cold.
Ghost Lake's a deep lake,
a dark lake and old!
Definition: an exaggeration or
sttrrreettccchhiinnnggg the truth

Examples:
**I am so hungry I could eat a horse.
**I have a million things to do.
**The new car costs a bazillion dollars.
**Martrice is faster than
the speed of light!!

How does Hyperbole look in Poetry?

On a Snowy Day

Everyone looks like snowmen.
So much snow that it’s like walking up to heaven.
The fireplace is aglow like a giant’s oven.
Our cups of hot chocolate are piled
To the roof of the house
With marshmallows.
We scurry in the house, a bunch of hurried mice,
On a snow day.
O my love is like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June.
O my love is like the melody
That's sweetly played in tune.
Now, think about how can you use
simile in YOUR poem!
Personification
Definition: giving human
qualities to something that is NOT human
Examples:
**Your computer hates me.
**Don't fool Mother Nature.
**The shy moon hid behind
a cloud.
**The leaves danced in the
wind.
How Does Personification
Look in Poetry?
Dinnertime Chorus
The teapot sang as the water boiled
The ice cubes cackled in their glass
the teacups chattered to one another.
While the chairs were passing gas
The gravy gurgled merrily
As the oil danced in a pan.
Oh my dinnertime chorus
What a lovely, lovely clan!
How will you use personification in YOUR poem?
Alliteration
Definition: repeating the same sound at the beginning of each of your words
Examples:
**Cole cares about cleaning cobwebs
out of corners of his clubhouse.

**Anna's abilities allow her to anticipate the
alligators that walk down the avenue.

**Jon jumps for joy when jaguars juggle
jolly ranchers.
How does Alliteration
look in Poetry?
The Wonderful Wind

The wonderful wind whistles
Repeated reminders throughout the day
Telling tales of what is coming
Predicting and preparing us to pray.
The wise wind sometimes whispers
The secrets that have been secretly hid.
How will you use
alliteration in
your poem?
Definition:
comparing
two things
WITHOUT
using "like" or "as"
Examples:
**Brady is such a brick wall. He is strong and protective.
**JP is a ball of fire. He can
get everyone excited about reading.
**Ethan is a breath of fresh air. His singing makes everyone happy!
How Metaphors
look in Poetry
Metaphor
Laughter

Laughter is a tune
, making its own melody as time goes on, eating away at every bad memory flowing through your mind, And always sneaking up on you from behind.
Laughter is a star
. It will twinkle when you least expect it.
It will make you happy when you fret. Even when you think it’s not there, it still flows through the air.
Laughter is a great tree
. It grows on you, And, yes, it will get you through life. It will bring you closer to yourself, and until you need it, it shall sit upon a shelf.

1. Two teams needed
2. Each team sends one person to the front of the room—determine your lineup. Once everyone has had a turn, start the lineup again.
3. The teacher will give an example of figurative language. If you know what kind it is, ring the bell.
4. The first person to ring the bell, gets to answer.
5. If you are correct, your team will get a point.
6. If you are incorrect, the other person gets a chance to answer.
7. If that person is wrong, you can consult with your team to answer…if you’re still wrong, the other team gets one last chance.
8. Anyone who tries to help their teammate up front will disqualify their team for the point.

Whose eyes were as round as the moon.
That wasn’t so bad,
But the nose that he had
Was as long and as flat as a spoon.

Poetic Device: Rhyme
How Rhyme looks in poetry:

The little toy dog is covered with dust,
But sturdy and staunch he stands.
The little toy soldier is red with rust,
And his musket molds in his hands.

(rhyme scheme ABAB)

How Repetition Looks
in Poetry

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
--from "the Charge of the Light
Brigade" by Tennyson
How will YOU use Repetition in YOUR poem?
O Captain! My Captain!
by Walt Whitman

O Captain! My Captain! Our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
