Writing with Similies – Creative Writing Tool


This mini lesson is intended to teach children what a simile is and how to write a simile. In the classroom, this lesson can be used to jump start students understanding of similes so they can identify them in their reading or utilize them in their creative writing.

By engaging the children in an interactive teacher modeling, small group guided practice, and an independent practice that can be taken for a grade, the children experience a hands-on lesson that introduces similes.

This 10 packet includes:
• Title page
• Overview page (that includes instructions for the teacher modeling)
• Small group activity during the guided practice
• Worksheet for each group to complete during the guided practice
• Independent practice worksheet
• Answer key (that provides possible answer combinations for the guided practice and independent practice)

If you think this product would be a great resource for your classroom, please download, rate, and enjoy!

Happy writing!
