The Librarian doesn’t appreciate Laura’s use of Onomatopoeia

Once again TED Ed has provided me with a simple way to make an introduction Lesson. this time for a Figurative Language Unit.

Let’s Begin…

In this song, Flocabulary defines literary devices like metaphors,allusions & similes. Listen closely, you’ll hear each device mentioned in the song followed by an example. The song follows Will, who wants to be the next big emcee. He finds his signature style when he starts using wordplay in his rhymes.Will learns to contrast two ideas by juxtaposing them, and breathe life into ideas using personification. He plays with sound using onomatopoeia, assonance and alliteration. He also uses hyperbole, irony and puns to perfect his rap.

You’re Invited! 🙂
