What in the Word!?!

For Grades K-5
Please register by January 13, 2022


Do you want to help your students understand figurative language and how authors use it to contribute to meaning in texts? As students study the craft of how authors use figurative language in reading, they will also begin to use it to enhance their own writing. During this session, we will take a deeper dive into figurative language to support Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standard R.3.1 (Figurative Language) for grades K-5.


Learning Intentions:

  • Discuss types of figurative language
  • Engage in exploration of how authors use figurative language to contribute to meaning in texts
  • Ascertain exciting ways to teach students how to understand and analyze figurative language in texts
  • Explore ways to help students use more figurative language in their writing
  • Discuss how to support ESE students
  • Determine how to get parents involved


  • Teachers get paid $25.00 an hour for attendance and in-service points
  • Additional ESE certification points can be earned through a follow-up assignment
  • Ongoing support for implementation through ConnectedClass.com for site licensed schools

Who should attend?

  • Any teacher that wants to learn strategies to help students understand figurative language
  • Any administrator who wants to add resources to their tool kit to inspire teachers
