* Assonance

* Hyperbole

* Onomatopoeia

* Metaphor

* Simile

Through repetition, images, the use of the words in context, and a melody that one can sing along too this video may find a place in your classroom. Although designed by a Grade 7 teacher you may find it useful in grades above and below Grade 7. Kudos to the teacher who posted this, Revae Mendoza!
