Similes are an important type of figurative language students learn in school. After being introduced to familiar similes, kiddos can write original similes with the help of the prompts in this packet. Each printable page has a simile prompt plus the meaning. On the included worksheet, students will write their simile's adjective and meaning. Then they will brainstorm for ideas for the comparison they need to complete their simile. The adjectives relate to the 5 senses, emotions, descriptive words, and character traits. An example is "The road is as bumpy as _______ /The road is uneven."
To finish their page, the children will draw a silly picture of the literal simile, then a picture of the meaning. There are 15 “AS_AS” and 15 “LIKE” similes for a total of 30 to choose from. A book cover in Color or Black + White is included, plus a Blank Template to add even more similes. Download the Preview for more information plus a sample page to try. Similes are one type of figurative language referenced in the Common Core State Standards 3.RL.4, 4.L.5, 5.RL.4, and 5.L.5. All graphics are original.
Instead of making a class book, another option is to make a bulletin board display.
Similes & Meanings is a companion resource to learn about familiar similes.
