don't_miss_this...finger_pointing_sign.jpgSTUDENT PROJECT....Mrs. Zimmerman's Learning Conservatory
The student poets learned all about using similes to describe character traits through a shared reading of the big book, Quick as a Cricket by Audrey Wood. We also read some of the witty similes in My Best Friend is as Sharp as a Pencil by Hanoch Piven. Prepared with a thorough understanding of descriptive similes, the students brainstormed lists of similes to describe themselves. They then chose their favorite simile to publish.
.
Here are 3 finished student projects. See more on the website.
