Students have started learning about similes to help improve their descriptive writing.

A simile is when a writer compares something to something else by using as a or like.

Examples:

  • The massive dog was as slow as a dawdling turtle.
  • The people below looked small like tiny ants.

Similes are also improved by using adjectives and strong words.

For the students’ homework this week, they need to write 2 similes. One simile will be comparing something that is hungry and the other will be comparing something that is angry.

Students will need to think of a topic that matches the topics and then write it in a simile by comparing it to something else. Each simile should have at least one adjective.

Students can post their comment on the blog or complete their homework in their homework book.

Homework is due on Friday.
