Similes are fun to teach through poetry! Perfect for mini-lessons, each of these short poems contains at least one simile, and some contain many! Because the text is short, but language rich, poetry is the perfect mentor text for targeted teaching!
Your students can discover wonderful similes in the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry W. Longfellow, Sara Teasdale, Christina Georgina Rossetti, Alfred Lord Tennyson and more.
Let the power of poetry help you teach (similes) smarter, not harder!
