Words you can't take literally...
Quickwrite
Assessment

Describe your day using only similes and metaphors. Write a single, cohesive paragraph.
Definition: A simile compares two things using the words "like" or "as."
Definition: Personification is when non-human objects or animals are given human characteristics.

Example: The wind whispered through the trees.
Closely read fictional text to interpret figurative language
and
analyze how authors use figurative language to help readers visualize characters, setting, and plot
through collaborative discussion and by writing using similes, metaphors, personification, and hyperbole.
Think About It:
What is the difference between figurative and literal language? Give a specific example.
The difference between figurative and literal language is _____________________________.
An example of literal language would be _________________________________________.
However, if that sentence was figurative, it would read, "______________________________________."
The difference between figurative and literal language is that figurative language does not always mean exactly what it says, and literal language always means exactly what it says.
