This Figurative Language Butterfly is one of my favorite activities of the year! And not just because it means that spring has sprung! It’s no secret that students enjoy expressing themselves artistically – and when you can combine learning – it works! Kids learn!
Here’s a SECRET – these are super-cute hanging in the hall or on bulletin boards!!
It looks like you spent HOURS slaving over them, but they assemble in just minutes!
This is the Figurative Language Butterfly – super easy to create with your class, and a super way to refresh students’ memories about figurative language! And I’ll say it again – this flock of butterflies make decorating your classroom super-easy!!
One way to do it is for your class to work on one section per day – this method is great for students who move at a slower pace or who require more in-depth teaching.
I’ve also allowed students to work on them during free time, or as morning work.
You could also have students create their butterfly independently as station work. Challenge students to find similes online. Or they could create their own!
I think most of us would agree that students are incredibly creative and innovative. The picture below features butterflies that were colored with highlighters – I wish I could take credit for that idea! There’s no doubt that they look especially bright, fun, and cheerful.
