Teaching young learners about similes is easy as pie with this primary grade language arts instructional activity. Following a class reading of the children's book, Quick as a Cricket by Audrey Wood, young readers learn the definition of a simile as they look at the numerous examples presented in the story. Children then apply this new writing technique to create mini booklets that include five similes describing their own character traits. To support young writers with this activity, consider providing sentence frames that can be used when developing original similes. This fun activity is bound to engage children as they learn about this common form of figurative language.
