Literary Device and Figurative Language Posters Revised

Good Morning!

After several requests for added terms, I have revised and updated my Literary Devices Posters!  These posters now contain...

1.  Alliteration
2.  Simile
3.  Metaphor
4.  Onomatopoeia
5.  Hyperbole
6.  Personification
7.  Synonym
8.  Antonym
9.  Homophone
10.  Idiom

Let me know if there is anything else I can create or add to these posters!

For some reason, the metaphor one won't come up... any ideas?!

Mary said...

Thanks for letting me know about the metaphor. I'll look into it :)

Hi Mary:

I love these! They are so cute and colorful!
I printed them about 8 seconds after I saw them!

I do have one (tiny) request...

If you ever find yourself in an editing mood... on the simile poster, could you write a sentence instead of a phrase? I'm not trying to be picky or ungrateful. It's just that my kids constantly write run-ons or sentence fragments--and I am always trying to put up sentences from which they can model their own (It hasn't worked yet, but I keep trying!)

Even: Jeremy is as tall as a giraffe... or whoever else you love.
: )

That would make my heart sing (Since I can't figure out how to edit on Scribd) All of the others are just perfect!

Thanks SO much! (I really am appreciative of all the work you did!)

Hi Kim,
I updated the poster. Just added, He is as tall as a giraffe. It is uploaded onto Scribd already. Glad I could help!

Mary said...

The slight typo has been fixed, thanks for the heads up! Sometimes when you stare at these things for so long, your eyes tend to go cross! :)

Thanks so much for these!

I was wondering if you might like to make posters for various text structures like compare/contrast, cause/effect etc.? :)

These are great! As for a suggestion, how about creating one for synecdoche?

Hi Mary, I love these posters! I am trying to help my students "spice" up their writing with some figurative language and these posters will help greatly! Thanks!!!

Hi Mary! I've already got these posters - am hanging them in my classroom right now! Thank you for sharing. One thing... I downloaded these before you fixed the "enourmous" on the synonym page, and now I can't access the new one on Scribd. Any chance you could e-mail me the pdf of that one page so I can complete the set?
Thanks again!
