My Editing Checklist
FREE My Editing Checklist - 1 sheet. I used this with my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to help them review and improve their writing. If any of their boxes are checked "NO" they must go back and correct the mistakes and check the "CORRECTED" box after they have fixed their mistakes. I kept this sheet at our Writing Center and also had students use them for Writing Homework assignments.
Similes and Metaphors in Pop Music Movie.wmv
Figurative Language - GREAT video!! I prepared a worksheet for my students. They copied down parts in the lyrics that were similes or metaphors, identified each according to what it was and then wrote what the artist was comparing...the true meaning behind the words. My students sat on the edges of their seats waiting for each song! It was a very engaging way to teach these literary devices!
