We have started our figurative language unit. Each week I will introduce a new form of figurative language. This week we started with similes and metaphors. Please see the google slide link below to see the examples we used. We used the slide through a site called PEAR DECK. Pear Deck enables me as the teacher to teach with an interactive slideshow displayed on the student Chromebooks. They students were able to type out their responses in real time so I could gauge who was understanding the concept and who wasn’t in a quick, easy way. The students were also extremely engaged while viewing the slide show. Please click the link below to see the slide show.
