Spotlight on Figurative Language: Metaphors

Ages: 8-14
Grades: 3-9

Metaphors are important in language because they add interest and color to what we say and allow for a unique way to learn about objects, ideas, and situations. Conversation becomes interesting with metaphors too.

Students with language disorders interpret things concretely. When their peers use metaphors (My math teacher is a bear!), students with language disorders can misinterpret what they say, feel left out of conversations, or participate inappropriately.

Help them understand and implement metaphors which will foster good peer relationships with this successful Spotlight series format.

Spotlight on Figurative Language: Metaphors includes:

  • step-by-step activities to build success and motivation
  • clear explanations with examples
  • reduced grammatical demands
  • carefully controlled vocabulary
  • a pretest/posttest

This book approaches metaphors in their purist and most basic form (something is something else). In order to aid students to move past their natural concrete understandings of metaphors, the metaphors are simple and well-defined.

Students learn to interpret non-literal speech, which will influence the outcomes of improved social conversation, reading comprehension, and written language while they have a few laughs along the way!
