and similes every day of your life!

More metaphors….
 The
crowd was an angry beast.
 She was the sunshine.
 He was a tornado of activity
 Silence is golden
 My memory is foggy.
Professor Pen
 While
a metaphor directly states
that “something” is “something

using “as” or “like”
•He was as quick

Quick as a Wink
 Lots
of cliches are similes. They are
fun to use, but don’t overuse them
in your writing!
 Even if you are busy as a beaver, it’s
not as cute as a button or as
American as apple pie to overuse
cliches. It should be as plain as the
nose on your face!
Professor Pen
Sing like a bird!
 Many
popular songs use similes and
metaphors. Can you think of some
Professor Pen
Song Similes
 “
two sparrows in a hurricane”
 “…as cold as ice”
 “ a rolling stone”
 “...whose fleece was white as snow”
 “ a bird up in the sky”
 “…like a bird in a cage”
Professor Pen
Try Your Own!
 Here’s
a fun activity!
– Re-write your favorite fairy tale using
similes and metaphors to make the story
more interesting. Use at least 5 different
similes and metaphors.
– Remember a simile uses “like” or “as”, a
metaphor doesn’t.
She is a pig (metaphor)
She eats like a pig (simile)
