Here are some of the awesome things I bought with my school money this year. They are picture cards for teaching metaphors and similes, idioms, and analogies. They are $12.95 a deck at Super Duper Publications. They also have other "fun decks" for nouns, pronouns, verbs, sequencing, prefixes and suffixes, plurals, adverbs, conjunctions, classifying, cause and effect, predicting, "wh" questions, irregular verbs, subjects and predicates, possessives, homonyms, homographs, comparatives, multiple meanings, antonyms and synonyms, compound words, contractions, plurals, and SO much more! This is going to be great for my autistic students to have visual!
