We went through alliteration, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, personification, symbolism, simile, metaphor, idiom, and cliche.
Do you know any of these already?
Of course! I know that alliteration is the repeat of consonant sounds, onomatopeias is when a words sounds like what it describes, and hyperboles are exaggerated terms.
Personification is when you give an inanimate object human like qualities. Symbolism is an object that represents an idea. Similes compare two things with like or as, and metaphors compare without like or as. Idioms have a figurative meaning that explains things more colorfully, and cliches are phrases that are so overused that they have no meaning.
Well, yes, but I don't understand it.
You should have said so! Come on, I have an idea.
Um, Allie? I think you know figurative language.
Cliche: The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
Simile: She was like a cheetah, running across the field.
Symbolism: When she saw the desk, she remembered That Day.
Personification: The pencil flew across the room.
Idiom: It's a piece of cake!
Metaphor: Her hair is a golden sun.
Onomatopoeia: whoosh! bang! crash! boom!
Alliteration:Peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Hyperbole: My feet are killing me!
Thanks so much for your help, Emily.
No problem. It was fun!
Vroom, flash. Onomatopoeia. My feet are killing me. Hyperbole. Fast as a cheetah. Simile. Peter piper. . . .
