What teachers have said about this resource:
♥ Thorough enough to provide solid practice and short enough that students don’t lose interest. Your task cards are a great resource for a 6th grade teacher. -Caroline A.
♥ I printed these cards off on card stock, laminated them, and put them on binder rings. Anytime I am absent, or need a quick lesson, I just have the scholars work on them in pairs. It is a super easy, super quick lesson and the scholars love. -Sarah S.
♥ Love this product! It allowed students to practice figurative language with writing. I like that each type of figurative language had multiple cards with different instructions. I also liked that the cards included the definitions. I would definitely use these cards again. -Imani V.
