Figurative Language Butterfly Activity

This Figurative Language Butterfly is a creative end of the school year, spring activity, or novel study for elementary students.

This Figurative Language Butterfly is one of my favorite activities of the year.

It’s no secret that students enjoy expressing themselves artistically – and when you can combine creativity with lessons – kids learn!

Here’s a SECRET – these are super-cute hanging in the hall or on bulletin boards!!

Spring Butterfly Craft Mother's Day
This is the Figurative Language Butterfly – easy to create with your class, and a super way to refresh students’ memories about figurative language.

And these butterflies make decorating your classroom super-easy!

Spring Butterfly Craft Mother's Day
This activity is easy for students to make and differentiated lessons are a snap.

One idea is to work on one butterfly section each day. that works especially well for students who move at a slower pace or who require more in-depth teaching.

Spring Butterfly Craft Mother's Day
This activity is great during free time, morning work, or as independent as station work.

I challenge my more capable students to find examples of figurative language online or to create their own.

Spring Butterfly Craft Mother's Day
You could challenge students to use figurative language based on the spring season, or Mother’s Day (if you want to use this as a gift for moms or grandmas).

Students are incredibly creative and innovative.

The picture below features butterflies that were colored with highlighters. They look especially bright, fun, and cheerful.

I’d LOVE to see how your students decorated their butterflies!
