Poetic Devices Tic Tac Toe Game

The Figures of Speech and Poetic Devices Tic Tac Toe Game is a fun activity to reinforce figures of speech. There are 4 options for play included in the freebie depending on the level of your students. 
The students read picture books and locate examples of figures of speech or poetic devices in the stories. In place of picture books, you could provide poem samples too. Students record any examples of figurative language they find on a chart. The students are then paired and play a game of Tic-Tac-Toe. Instead of marking an X or O, they write a quote and label it with the correct name of the figure of speech or poetic device. 3 across wins!

Game includes alliteration, personification, onomatopoeia, simile, metaphor, repetition, and rhyming. 

Happy Playing!
