Figurative Language Posters and Super Words Revamped

Yesterday I decided to make some figurative language posters.  I created posters for the following types of figurative language: simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, and alliteration.  Each poster consists of the definition of the term, an example, and a picture to go with it.  These are perfect for intermediate grade classrooms!

I also have a Figurative Language Interactive Notebook in my store that complements the posters above.  It contains a ton of activities to use for the following types of figurative language: similes, metaphors, personification, idioms, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, and alliteration.

Recently, I decided to go back and revamp my first freebie ever (from March of last year)!  I am now selling this pack for $2.00.  It consists of definitions of the following terms: predict, compare, contrast, analyze, identify, infer, describe, summarize, and explain.  I am planning on hanging up these posters before our state tests to review their meanings with my students.
