Can be a literacy center or a whole class game/activity to learn to use similes. Ways to use the cards:
1) Cut them up and turn upside down. In a literacy center, children can pick up one card at a time and all try to complete the simile in their own way orally or on marker boards.
2) Give each child one simile card and have them walk around the room. When you call FREEZE, they must share their similes with a buddy nearby, and then swap cards and create a new simile with their new card
3) Can be used as a homework assignment; cut the page in the middle, and have children glue the strip to the left side of their paper, and complete the simile on the right.
