This week I was trying hard to get my class excited about Figurative Language. My fifth graders were still struggling recognizing metaphors.  I wanted to get them involved and excited.  After a bit of web browsing,  I stumbled upon a fabulous lesson created by Tracee Orman using Katy Perry's Firework lyrics. Immediately, I had their attention. Not only were they singing and having fun, but they were engaged and making connections. Great lesson for those who have to teach tweens about metaphors & similes!
