PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Boost students’ descriptive writing strategies with practice writing and using similes! Grades 2 to 4 (and adaptable for grades 5 & 6).

Students write similes about a character (a robot or a fairy), and then write a short story about the character and incorporate the similes in the story.

What is included
- instructions / steps (suggestions, really!) for running the activity
- ideas for extension activities and for adapting the material to different levels / grades
- 2 sets (robot and fairy) of activity sheets for creating similes with the ‘like’ and ‘as’ simile structure (each set has 3 options for level of support for students)
- story writing sheet set for each character (robot and fairy)
- sheet with definition and example of a simile (to put up or hand out to students

This activity suggests four picture books about similes to use as a springboard for discussing similes, but it can also be done very nicely without a picture book.

Please see the preview for further details and to see the activity pages!
