Figurative Language
As students begin to read more sophisticated texts, understanding how authors use figurative language becomes critical. In this unit, students will revisit some of the figurative language they learned in fourth grade and also study some new ones too, including onomatopoeia, hyperbole, puns and oxymorons. Analyzing how figurative language is used in texts will help readers apply what they have learned.

Teach puns to your child to show them just how interesting language can be. Armed with a few good puns, your child will be able to turn any response into a joke. Though puns are a great opportunity for creativity, sometimes they can be a bit tough to get started. For puns help, Education.com has prepared several exercises below.
There is nothing punny about a frustrated student who just doesn’t understand the secret code people seem to be talking in. To teach puns, it helps to have great puns resources at your fingertips. Education.com has a number of activities, exercises, and worksheets that not only give students puns help, but a better understanding of metaphors and other figures of speech. While learning puns, jokes that exploit the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words that sound alike but have different meanings, is certainly trickier than a classic knock-knock joke, once students reach the fifth grade, they will begin to appreciate a more refined sense of humor. Silly jokes like, “Reading while sunbathing makes you well red” will get a laugh out of students learning puns, and may be just the puns help some need to finally understand what makes puns so punny.
