31 printable handouts to guide your students in using similes to describe a person, place or thing. Each page has an incredible photo to provide a comparison of character or actions: a flower, a gnarly tree, a cactus, a withered leaf, a blue jay, a hummingbird, a lizard, a dragonfly, a honeybee, a bee-mimic fly, a monarch caterpillar, tiny aphids, a shield bug, a snail shell, a mushroom, or a water drop. Each page has a sample simile: as nervous as a blue jay on a branch, as watchful as a lizard on a log, as pushy as a mushroom after a storm, as noisy as a hungry woodpecker in the spring, as crowded as a stalk full of aphids, as sharp as the spines on a cactus, as wrinkly as an old leaf, as empty as a snail’s old shell, as slow as a shield bug trying to get away, and more.
Perfect for whole-class or a literacy center, Gifted or early finishers. Take a look at the Preview to see a few sample pages.
