Simile

Students wrote poems where they incorporated the use of a simile. A simile is a comparison using the words "like" or "as". Examples of similes would be "The paint was green like grass" and "The cat was fierce as a tiger".  Using those examples, try and create your very own simile.  When you are done, click on one of the links below to view a poem one of our students created and see what simile they created.

The girl who ran, ran like the wind. When she ran through the forest as fast as she could.   She went over a cat, through the garden, and into the mall. Now she was as lazy as a cat! She will come home to rest until another good day for running.
