Figurative Language Posters
Classroom Bulletin Board Display
These Figurative Language Posters help reinforce students’ understanding of the various figurative techniques. At the same time brightening up your classroom walls and creating an engaging learning environment. Figurative language creates comparisons by linking the senses and the concrete to abstract ideas. Words or phrases are used in a non-literal way for a particular effect. For example, simile, metaphor, personification. Figurative language may also use elements of other senses, as in hearing with onomatopoeia, or in combination as in synaesthesia.
These 16 posters will brighten up your classroom and help remind your students of these different techniques. Each poster provides a definition of each, plus an example with a matching illustration. These posters were designed with the Upper Primary/Junior High School classroom in mind.
