This interactive SMARTboard lesson provides practice in identifying similes in sentences. Students will read 3 different sentences on each slide and they will have to determine which sentence contains a simile. Both "like" and "as" similes are used. The lesson is self checking simply by clicking on the cookie jar so it can be used as a whole group lesson, small group minilesson, or as a student centered station for independent work. Works very well as a minilesson for teacher to introduce or reinforce similes. Great for grades 3-5. Created with Smart Notebook 11.
