Workshop Wednesday, FB Linky, Giveaways

Jessica is hosting a new linky party called Workshop Wednesday! This week we're talking about our must haves in Writer's Workshop. My class and I simply couldn't live without figurative language/word work! It's such a HUGE part of our day! We are constantly finding/using examples of figurative language in all subject areas. Because I do so many activities and get so pumped up about it, my students notice it EVERYWHERE! Here are a few pictures from my classroom:


We COLLECT great figurative language examples from my read alouds and from my students' independent reading. We've filled this cabinet a few times! They love adding to collection and using this as a resource for their writing!
 
UPDATE: My Figurative Language Interactive Bulletin Board has been added to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store-click here to check it out!
 
My favorite book is the thesaurus! We collect words too! These are our synonym key chains. I made this template on index cards.
 
My idiom posters are a focal point in our classroom and constantly used as a resource. These posters are a great visual for students to reference. We also have several resources we use in our writing folders.

Facebook Linky Party from 1, 2, 3 Teach With Me! Great way to "like" other bloggers on FB! Spread the word and your "likes"!

  1. I like how you teach figurative lanugage throughout the year - I usually teach it as a unit - but I like your idea and how the students are always looking for examples.

  2. I'm like you and teach figurative language all year- mainly because it's so fun and they need constant exposure to it! Thanks for linking up!!

  4. Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or
    guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on
    the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share
    some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy
    your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free
    to shoot me an email.
