Figurative Language Worksheets

Why is figurative language music to the ears? The answer is simple. It gives communication a totally refreshing feel. It's the beautiful art that we get to bask in to our heart's content in sentences like "The little girl in her new dress was a feast for the eyes". It doesn't take a language connoisseur to say "She is beautiful". It takes a discerning insight into figurative language to consider the selfsame idea of beauty and bedeck it with a mind-boggling metaphor so the effect is manifold. Our printable figurative language worksheets for kindergarten through grade 7 students are a must-have for every language enthusiast. Taking you through most common literary devices such as simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification, these learning-and-practice-rolled-into-one exercises amazingly fit around a diversity of your everyday communication requirements.
