Every year I assign a Figurative Language Project, where kids have to write examples of similes, metaphors, personification, and hyperbole. Below are a few of my favorite examples from this year.
"The cat is hairy like the barber's legs."
"Ms. Fletcher knows more than the whole collection of Harry Potter books."
"The sun is a big burning bowl of chili."
"The romantic red rose was as red as the devil's tail."
"My friend's nails are long spider legs."
"His teeth were as yellow as the sun."
"My mom is my shooting star."
I also told them to think of a creative title. From Nathan I got, "Similes, metaphors and More! An Epic Tale of...Stuff."
